October 11th—Sunset #5

Lamy Joy fountain pen and watercolor
Yesterday was clear and so beautiful after the rain cleared out, but noticeably colder everyday. The "I hate to be cold" side of me said "Just stay in", but at the last minute I jumped in the car and went up to the North St overlook to sketch the sunset at 6:05 pm.
Bundled up in my parka (and my flip flops), I quickly sketched and painted noticing how dramatically different the light was and how much the colors of the leaves had changed from my last sketch two weeks ago. I had assistance from a guy who introduced himself as "Cowboy". It is amazing how many different people one meets when sketching in public.
