The camping trip made me want to paint more at the river, so I took Merlin down the other afternoon, and he roamed around the Greenbelt Park while I painted. Things didn't click as smoothly as they had for me on the island, but I got a couple I'm pleased with. It's fun to paint sometimes without the pen drawing first, though I'm still trying to figure out the best way to make that work.
