So I spent the past few days on an art weekend in Jasper National Park, and, well, to say the least, I feel defeated and frustrated with what I produced. After the first couple of days of plein air and using colour, with all efforts being downright awful, I resorted to pencil sketches. But I thought I would leave you with a nice Jasper picture until I can get my pictures off my camera. I also plan to add some paint to some of my pencil sketches, and then I will share them. But that is the way of an artist, you must paint many many paintings before you get one good one! What you see below is a stock photo off the internet just to give you a taste of what I was looking at.
