Day eight. OK, what a mess here! Rushing around on a busy day does not lend itself to successful painting. At least for me it hasn't. Definitely important to not skip important things like measuring something to anything else in this case.

Day nine. Trying to avoid paint messes I started drawing first. Not sure if this will count as a plein air painting for the Strada Easel challenge but it is necessary for my mental health.
