Back out to Rock Cut with Clawed. Found a nice spot near the concession stand. A lot of activity from hikers and trail runners.

Had one passer by that had to let me know that he was a portrait painter. He should have stopped there. The more he spoke, the less I believed that he knew anything about painting. The kicker came when he mentioned that a friend of his used to work on illustrations for a state line manufacturer. His friend worked in gouache because it would drive much faster than oils. I indicated that since it was opaque watercolor it would dry much faster. He corrected me, “No, my friend used gouache, not watercolor.”  Oh, my mistake. Just keep painting.
