We've has a very cold winter so I haven't been able to spend much time eben in the car painting- would have to leave the engine running in -40 windchill weather.
But I have another half-dozen little sketches. Unfortunately, when it's mild enough to do them, it's also dark and gloomy with little color or contrast.
The first 4 are 20-30 minutes, 5x7 oil pastels. Nothing special, but at least I did them.
I thought I'd try one at night, in the rain.
Sketched these smelt-shacks on the river while husband and daughter were being dragged around same river behind a traction kite.
Daughter and I sketched together by the river. The snow had melted but river was frozen, and it was a c-c-cold day.

Oops, forgot about this one...frustrated by earlier sketching attempts being thwarted, I sat in the driveway and sketched the front deck! There are often deer back there among the trees.
to be continued....
