Overton Park Birthday Party

I, unfortunately didn't make it out to the Farmer's market yesterday. I did, however, get to sketch/paint a little at Overton Park during a birthday party my kids were attending.

I've been experimenting with the idea of finding a new medium that's a little more dense than watercolor, more water soluble than gouache, and that's inexpensive and mobile—can be set up and broken down simply and quickly. I landed on this combination of powder tempera on paper.

This piece took me around an hour. I'm fairly pleased with the outcome, and hopeful for rewarding results in the future.
