Quick Thistle Sketch 'En Plein Air'

I drew "En Plein Air" today. Yikes it was hot! I wanted to draw longer, but just couldn't take the heat. This drawing is of a couple of stalks of Thistle in a little patch I have growing near my studio.

Tip: It was done very quickly and almost entirely holding my pencil like a wand.


  1. Ooh, I have yet to try plein air. If it's as hot where you're at as it is here in Illinois, I'm not sure how you didn't melt. LOL. Although it was quite chilly at 6:30 this morning when I left for work.

  2. It was so humid, I felt as if I was melting! Maybe I'll try it again . . . early in the morning next time. :-D
