Took the mountain bike and sketchbook up to Saratoga Gap today. My sore knee from yesterday kinda bugged but soon as I got moving and the blood flowing, it loosened up nicely.
Was colder than I expected and wanted to stay longer but the afternoon chill got the better of me and I took off before the evening set in. Got some fun sketches in though; I need to pick up a small portable stool that I can pack along with my camelbak so I can just stop on the side of the trail and not have to worry about bugs or poison oak on my bum. ^_^
Perfect place to paint forest scenes, I definitely need to go back soon. Took a bunch of pics but after painting from life so much... they really don't do the scene justice and you lose so much detail in a photo.
Sketches from today and a few days ago:
