Yesterday was a fine, warm November day to gather with the Odanaksis artists at Dewey's Pond in Quechee. The sun was shining and there was a little breeze and we all know that any day now it will be cold and snowy--making the day even more special.
I took up a seat looking over the pond toward the west and using my Sharpie, sketched what I saw in my traveling sketchbook. My watercolor brush with the water in the handle, accessed by squeezing the barrel, works well for this kind of sketch.

Although the foliage was actually a bit muted, I decided that being a bit fauvist would be fun. So, my painting looks a bit more peak foliage than it was...
