Hale beat against our window and made the road treacherous in the high passes last Thursday. In relative comfort I painted as we relentlessly drove on in the Subaru. The lower drawing is Prang watercolor pencil on my super deluxe Bee Paper Aquabee 9 inch by 6 inch Supper Deluxe sketch book. The top two painting are done on a sketch book purchased in Lhasa, Tibet. The paper is opalescent with a grid of small circles. In English the cover says"Gouache Sketch Book.
It is tricky being both neat and loose while painting in a moving car. I only used a tablespoon or less water at a time and managed to use all the water before refilling my little container on the Cotman compact set of 13 of the 14 watercolor half tins. I replace the lead white with titanium white from a tube. I hold the Cotman set in my left hand. My sketchbook is in my lap and I paint and draw with my right hand. It works well on long trips but occasionally a spastic brush swipes the car console.
