wave sketch from fishing pier looking north / charcoal and chalk

Weird thing happened on the pier. If you’re easily grossed out read no further.

It was cool and windy. Some people were walking on the beach so I zipped my windbreaker up to my chin and decided to try to sketch. The wind was coming from the North. I was doing ok with the sketch, resting my sketchbook on the railing, then suddenly a drop of water flew onto my paper and I wondered where did that come from. Then I realized the cold wind was making my nose run and snot actually flew out of my nose without me knowing! So I just left it there. hahaha. Did you think I was a high class dame? I don’t even care about the snot. It dried up on my way home.

This story is to let you know how gross plein air drawing and painting can be. All year long sand, leaves and dirt get in my paintings. In the summer bug spray and sweat get in my drawings. And there’s snot in the winter, evidently.

      1. My worst was when i was sitting painting at Polperro in Cornwall. As I sat down a seagull who had been sitting on the bench flew up, circled above me, pooped on my head, then came back and sat on the bench again. Lucky you say??? NO!!!
