Too Cold to Draw Outside, but...

... I had to sketch the partial demolition of Calhoun Square.. The temperature was 19 degrees, so I used the new Sharpie pen. It didn't freeze and it didn't bleed through to the other side of the paper. I wish I could have added color, but my toes were cold and I had to get going. I don't think there's much more outdoor sketching left for this year.

Never say never (or variations) Ken. We could have a sunny day when even if it's zero it could be quite balmy. You need to develop a line of artist accessories for the cold weather artist. Including toe warmers like the hunters use!

I haven't been over there in so long I did't realize the extent of the changes going on there. I love this sketch. Thanks for putting the note in about Orr books.

I always wondered what kind of pen you'd use for outdoor drawing in cold weather. You're right, it's time to sketch indoors...with coffee....and goodies.

Another problem is nose-drip on the journal. I'm sketching indoors until it gets warmer.
