I sketched in downtown St. Louis over lunchtime and took in the St. Louis Public Library's "Not So Quiet! Concert Series." Today's entertainment was provided by the Bottoms Up Blues Gang, featuring vocalist Kari Liston, guitarist Jeremy Segel-Moss and Adam Andrews on harmonica. The BUBG plays a unique blend of originals and covers in the styles of Delta Blues, R&B, Soul, Jazz, and Blues-influenced Rock & Roll.

It was 94 degrees with a triple-digit heat index, but an occasional breeze, a shady spot, and some cold water kept the heat at bay.

It's a wonder that your paint didn't dry on you before you could complete the washes in that heat!
Nice easy going painting.

Frank: Good point! Even though it was hot, the humidity allowed the paper to stay adequately wet to work with it. Uncomfortable for me, but the paper seemed to like it. :)
