Sunday afternoon the sun was shinning warmly so I walked down to the pond to sketch. I have trampled down the grass in one spot where I sit and think. Next year I think I'll put a permanent chair down there. I have always found it hard to paint/draw landscapes especially when they are right in front of me. I get overwhelmed by so many details. This was my first drawing.
This was the second drawing. click to enlarge.
Experiment from Spirit of Drawing. "Choose a small section of a natural place to explore through touching. Let this exploration lead you into drawing, leaving your eyes closed. Then allow this sense of contact to continue as you draw with eyes open. Let this drawing be a journey with no time limit, finding a pace that feels natural to you. Draw as if you are hiking in the wilderness, where every step, every turn, reveals something new." pg 96
