Field Trip Revised

Revised Sketch of a Field Trip by Sarah Sullivan

Field Trip Revised

This is a larger and more carefully drawn version of my post from October 25. I wanted to do a better job capturing the liveliness of a very large class of students taking a field trip to Balboa Park in San Diego.

This sketch is based on a couple of photos and my plein air sketches of the lily pond from earlier in the month. I got kind of bogged down with the detail and overworked the pond and building. And I could not come close to fitting in the many students in a typical California classroom. However, I did convey livelier students this time, especially those students at the end of the line.

This is gouache sketch on a 12 X 17-inch sheet of black paper.
