90 Minute “Quick Draw” en Plein Air, Waxahachie, Texas

90-Minute Watercolor Sketch of the Ellis County Courthouse

The winds were fierce this morning, but the Quick Draw was fun.  The event lasted 90 minutes (8:30-10:00) and I was pleased that this painting brought a fair price at auction.  The winds and the 100-degree heat got to me after lunch, so I chose to make the 40-minute drive back home, and return in the late afternoon to attempt a second painting.  I’ll post that one next.

Thanks for reading.

    No. I could not do this in 90 minutes. Clapping for you!

    Thank you, Leslie. I’m glad that the 90-minute Angst period is over! All the artists laugh at the “cringing” we experience, looking at the clock, and talking to ourselves, trying to finish on time.
