The umbrella-shaped canopy of a beautiful tree in our front yard this morning, provided shade from the bright sun. The sunlight dappled through the lush, spring-green, new foliage and onto the grass. I sat and sketched in my Midori Travelers’ Notebook. All thoughts vanished from my mind but those of attempting to capture the beauty around me.
XL photos look garish. I am working from my iPad – not usual laptop – and it is giving me grief.
I am not particularly happy with the water-colour pencil when blended with wet brush – not as neat as real watercolours. Of course, it could be my technique, or lack thereof. Because they are so portable, I will try a few more times.
