Or perhaps not, depending on your point of view. Although there’s plenty to be said for the life giving vitality of the city, if I had to pick, I’d take the quiet by a river with coyotes and deer wandering through any day. A weekend of slowing down enough to see. The freedom of sketching is in taking the subject the way it comes and not having a perfect rendering when I decide to stop. The drawing is good enough the way it is.
