Plein air walnut ink

This is my first time out to draw on my lunch break since the leaves were still green last year.  The busy autumn and long, cold winter had kept me in, but today it was sunny and in the upper 60s, so I decided I had to get out.

Unfortunately, it was also very windy.  After my tackle box blew over and my plastic ink tray blew away, I had to keep things closed and keep one hand on my supplies while I drew with the other.

I found a suitable group of trees as a subject over at E. P. Sawyer Park and sketched for a half hour or so using a bamboo pen and metal nib dip pen.  I think it's a decent start and I'll see how it looks after I spend a little more time filling it out at home.
