Luckily a fisherman wandered into view and cast his line while I was still doing the pen drawing so I could add him for scale, though I think I made him a tad large.
Next I really wanted to sketch a cottonwood tree, we don't have many of those in the Salt Lake area. It took a bit of searching to find one in a good position for me to sketch even though the river is lined with them;
By now it was nearly noon and even though the Heber Valley is at a higher elevation than the Salt Lake Valley it's not any cooler during the summer so I went into town and sat at a picnic table in the shade and sketched part of the St Lawrence Catholic Church;
I almost didn't post this sketch because there are so many errors in it, but the reason I sketch isn't to create a masterpiece. Sketching from life is all about improving your observation and drawing skills.
Here are a couple photos I took during today's activities;
