Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge
The day began with a trip to one of my favorite art supply stores, Muse, where I bought some new pens, charcoal, a new sketchbook & a sharpener. We drove to Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge where I did some sketching (you're allowed only to get out of the car in just one place, the rest of the time the sketching has to take place in the car--which is not a bad thing, it was fun)... At the end of the day I turned my sketches into an oil painting (painted over one of my failed paintings).
