Park Sketching - Carolyn Pappas
Last Sunday I went to the park in my city and sketched these trees while sitting in my car and sipping on (too sweet) coffee. It was a relaxing time and it was quite warm in my car so I didn't notice that it is November. There were a lot of old ladies walking dogs, but otherwise it was very quiet. I tried to keep my color selection down to a minimum so I didn't become overwhelmed with multiple colored pencils, but I actually like the limited palette now that I look at it. It seems very mellow to me, which was how I was feeling at the time.
The trees are all bare now. I was meaning to get out and draw the foliage, but unfortunately I had a bad fall a few weeks ago which kept me from drawing. I did collect some leaves however, and they are now on my side table waiting to be drawn.
