Sketching from a Hammock

hammock sketchTrying to sketch (& paint) in a hammock might sound cool but it is frustratingly harder than you might expect at lots of levels. The hammock is a cocoon in the shadows and the world outside is bright and radiant. Trying to balance the watercolour (even a portable pallette) proved impossible and my arms where continually being restrained by the sides of the hammock. Well I can say I tried it, but not sucessfully. Much easier to use my phone to collect a reference photo. The “clone painting” below is several layers of mixed media from Corel Painter.
