As I follow Facebook groups and Instagram one thing is clear. Sketchers sketch autumn colors, often as a single tree. I’ve never done that but as I was out walking yesterday it occurred to me that I should.
Why? Because there were steps I could sit on at the bank. Across the street there was a red maple, showing off how it got its name. I was only carrying my ‘short kit’ which amounted to small sketchbooks with inexpensive quick-sketching paper but I sat down and drew it. The drawing took only a few minutes and I had to add the color at home, very carefully as the paper buckled quite a bit. Regardless, here is my autumn tree. The U-shaped things are supposed to protect the trees from errant snow plows. Somewhat of an anachronism as it’s not going to snow any more – is it?
Ah, you’re finely showing us some fall color in your neck of the woods! Very nice.
Tis true, and the late change of color here was followed quickly by the leaves being gone, almost completely now…except for the 30 bags of them on my lawn 🙂 — Larry
