Memorial Day Sketching at a Civil War Reenactment

Not to be missed! The full post is over at Pastel, since it is part of the Plein Air Project.

Physical and moral courage is the stuff of battle. Artistic courage is going into a holiday crowd and doing pastels en plein air of something you've never done before. New subjects, unusual environment, subjects you intentionally avoid (horses) and fast moving action!

Have a meaningful and memorable holiday.

I agree about the artistic courage eek!

But soooo much fun. I do think I'll be there in costume next year. I have a feeling it may take the edge off of the novelty for the reenactors. They are comfortable in their costumed environment.
