The spring season has arrived, and with any luck there will more sunny days and fewer rainy ones ahead. I’ve been doing more tree sketches, and here are the final 6 from my assignment for Marla Baggetta’s Painting Trees in Pastel. Two of them I sketched from my yard, outdoors.
I really hope I can keep up this good habit of sketching from nature. One thing I noticed is that the more difficult or complicated I thought the tree would be to draw, the more deeply I had to look at it, and the better the final drawing came out. I just need to remember how much I enjoyed this assignment…now on to lesson 2!
