Sketching outdoors when it is below zero can be very tricky and definitely it is not comfortable. But I can see one positive thing in this process. Since you are very cold you hurry to complete the drawing and hence you need to focus on what is the most important. You aim to capture the ‘Thing’. That is what made you stop and draw the particular scene and drop all the rest. You might not get it right but you will learn something about our chosen theme. I did that this week – the pencil sketching of Vysehradska street in the picture above. Later on being indoors I expanded on the captured idea and played around with color as well.
