Sketching Weather - Carolyn Pappas

This is a sketch I made of a small grove of pine trees with a telephone pole ruining my view. Lately I've been thinking that I very rarely even see nature without some man made object in view as well. This is another piece I made thinking along the same lines.

I made this sketch at the beginning of March on a day that was a little warmer than usual. I rushed out there to do some sketching, but it ended up being a little too cold and I had to go back inside when my fingers started freezing off. Today it's in the high 60's and I was able to get outside and do some nice sketching. Tomorrow is supposed to reach up to 70 and I am sooo excited about it! I'm not with my scanner now, so I will post my sketches in a few days.


  1. I love your strokes. I'm never patient enough to do this but soooo admire this technique.

  2. Thanks Pam. This didn't take me that long, only about 20 min.

  3. Good to see your post, Carolyn! I often find manmade stuff in my way, but sometimes enjoy the juxtaposition. Powerlines and transformers, especially...
