Street Fair

 

My community has been hosting a delightful annual five-day street fair for over one hundred years. I went to this event this morning and spent a couple hours sketching some livestock with a fine line permanent black marker on watercolor paper. I use a few light watercolor washes to finish these small works. I did three, but my favorite of this session is “Fair Pigs”. I thought about adding a few more ink lines, but I try to avoid fiddling too much with drawings from life as it can kill the spontaneous feel.
