Leaf Study

Well, I’m continuing to work on developing a regular sketchbook practice. While in San Diego for vacation this summer, I sketched these leaves on the back deck of the little beach cottage we rented. It was incredibly pleasant to be out there sketching in the morning while I had my coffee. A big plus is that when I look back on these sketches in my sketchbook, I am immediately taken back to that lovely time. I’ve been hearing about this experience from people who sketch while on their vacations but am still surprised at how much more vivid the memory is than when I look at photos of the exact same spot. So that is more encouragement to continue this practice.
