Here's the little sketchbook I carried at Ghost Ranch.
When I say little, I do mean little--especially compared to the books I've hauled around on previous trips. The pages shown below are about 3 by 5 inches.
Sketching was limited by only being able to work in short bursts. For one thing, it was cold! I know how wimpy that sounds, but seriously. For another, I was there as a volunteer, so often I was drawing on field trips while the college kids roamed around--so my time wasn't so much my own; there was none of the "ten more minutes to get this right" that I usually permit myself. When it was time to meet back at the van, it was time to meet back at the van, no cross-hatching about it.
I also did a little experimenting with water-soluble wax pastels--which, by the way, are cool. I've never been able to get effects I like with watercolor, so they didn't really do the trick for me; but they were a good alternative when color was called for but it was too cold to use water in the field; I colored with them outside, then added water to blend them later when thawing indoors.
A great month. Back at home, and working on paintings in the studio.
