Enjoyed another day working plein air. This time in the lovely community of Meaford which has a wonderful harbour with lots of subject matter.
Again, acrylic on linen mounted on board. Gesso mixed with Quin Red. Quick plan as thumbnail sketch. Sketch transferred to panel using with pencil. Final plan committed with acrylic marker - black.
