After a very social weekend, it felt good to walk over to Søndersø, a small lake north of Copenhagen, and paint for the day. I found a bench near a swimming beach and spread out my gear.
The sunlight and clouds on the water was challenging and I was on my third try at it when an elderly woman walked out on the dock and stayed long enough for me to draw her into the picture. I liked the way she held onto the rail and soaked the view in. She seemed to appreciate it deeply and I wanted to capture that feeling in this sketch.
