Sketch-It

Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Hops and Hound Festival

Leave a comment


Today I happened upon the Hops and Hound festival in Maffeo Sutton Park. It is a beer tasting and dog photo event where many people with dogs gathered in a our popular downtown park at the waterfront. I presume that the beer is for the dog owners as I did not see any canines walking around with a big smile on their face.

I found a pick nick table in the sun with a view of the band stand and the activities, perfect setup to make a sketch.

Unfortunately, the pen that I used for the initial sketch was not waterproof so that some of the lines washed out unexpectedly, particularly on the winter tree on the left. I carefully finished the sketch with a watercolor wash anyways, while trying to minimize the ink from smudging.
