Boy is it sunny today! Bright blue sky, but a little cool. I caught my dad sitting outside catching some Sunny D. He moved around some, but I got enough in to get a good resemblence. It was kind of difficult holding the sketchbook in my left hand along with the W&N 12 pan kit holding it with my left thumb on top of the sketchbook but it worked just fine. The brush in my right of course. I showed him the sketch after I finished. It’s a keeper.
