John U Lloyd State Park

This past Saturday we had our field trip to John U Lloyd State Park. I was a beautiful day and we had a good turnout. I was very happy with the photographs I was able to get and would love to see everyone elses favorites posted here. Here are a couple of mine along with some shots of members busy at gathering reference material and their guests

Member's Work

This beautiful colored pencil portrait was done by member Marion Cohen. I am posting it with her permission.

Wakodahatche wetlands

Corrin and I (Anita) had a wonderful time working Plein aire at the wetlands. The sun was very bright which hindered us a bit. Walkers stopped by to see what we were doing and had only encouraging comments. On the way out I spotted this incredible bird. According to their web site this is a Purple Gallinule.

Great Tool!

Thanks to Linda Whittle for introducing me to the Bic mechanical pencil. I've used mechanical pencils before but these are cheap, convenient, never need to be sharpened and give a nice sharp line that transfers with great ease. I will now not only be using these for all my transfers but will carry one in my purse with my mini sketchbook, much less messy than the alternative.
