I have a Moleskine sketchbook that I haven’t used much, but I’ve liked Wil Freeborn’s watercolors in his, so I thought I’d give mine a try again with this preliminary sketch for another painting for my California series. I am going to make a concerted effort to sketch Tysons this year, and the peculiar characteristics of the Moleskine Sketchbook paper could prove useful. Two for one here, working out a composition and getting practice with this paper and my compact kit for watercolor sketching.

Thanks for reading.
