This was a loose sketch done at Gardenview. It's always a battle between how loose to make a sketch or painting or how tight. I prefer loose. I think this is just about right. It didn't take all that long, (about a half hour I think) and it has a satisfactory light and dark pattern. While the Moleskine sketchbook isn't the most forgiving paper to work on, if you start wet on wet, letting the colors bleed together, you can start establishing hard edges once it starts to dry. This leaves some of the fused wet in wet colors alone so that there is a bit of "mystery" to it all.
