This was my sketch from last week. You never know when you work outside what you will encounter: can't find shade where you want to sketch, bugs, crowds, people wanting to chit chat right when you have started to lay a critical wash down, vehicles pulling up and blocking your view, and landscaping maintenance, just to name a few. The latter was what I encountered the day this sketch was done, hedge trimmers, cherry pickers beeping, pressure washing, etc. You get the idea. That's why this one was quick and loose! Share your stories in the comments of the craziest things you have run across while painting or sketching outside.
