"Village House, Hale Farm 4"
A page from my Summer Sketchbook. This is the 4th sketch
from my day at the Hale Farm in the Cuyahoga Valley
National Park. Painted in Gouache, it measures 5" x 7.75",
on watercolor paper.
Shortly after I began painting, a group of people showed up and began
setting up rows of chairs and a garden trellis right behind me.
A wedding ceremony had been scheduled for the very spot I had chosen.
I finished my sketch and got out of the way before the guests showed up
but it was pretty distracting to paint with a dozen young people
setting it all up a couple of feet behind me.
