I do almost all of my sketching on location so I’m very comfortable doing so. There is one circumstance, however, that I find challenging. Looking up at the subject to be sketched always seems harder than it should be. I don’t know if there’s something about the upward-looking angle or the fact that I have to bob my head through a much larger angle between subject and paper. In any case, getting the proportions and perspective correct is always harder.
We were sketching at the train station, though, and I drew this portion of one of the buildings. Quebec is blessed with these sorts of rooftops and so looking up is is worth the effort.
The neck crank is always hard for me, too. I’ve been tempted to lie on the ground!
