Some plein air sketching this a.m. with my fried Gina. We're going to a 3-day workshop in Nova Scotia in September and are going to practice for 2 hours Friday mornings.

A good number of catbirds in the yard this summer, which suits me just fine: they're beautiful and I love their song.
Such an elegant bird but I haven't painted them much. To me these are both a little overpainted--I kept trying to get it "right," whatever that is!
I think I would like more direct, and wetter, washes ... The catbird has such a recognizable silhouette and such simple colorings and markings, there is probably more room to let the washes run wild.
