After crossing the South Congress Avenue Bridge, I came into the heart of downtown Austin, not that far from the state capital building. Whipping out my Moleskine watercolor book and a Uniball pen, I did some quick on-the-spot sketches of trees there.
Again, nothing fancy. I just wanted to quickly capture the trees I saw. I also wanted to move along quickly.
It wasn’t just because I had more to draw. It was because Austin, Texas was HOT with a big “H”. I was dripping with sweat as I stood there, scribbling down those trees.
