A Low Pine in the Sunshine, My 1st Pocket Sketchbook’s Complete!

…I guess I did some of my own ‘field work’ sketching ‘in the field’ today. A low pine in the sunshine, Mar. 18, 2023, from my pocket sketchbook near home. I sat on a rock to view this scene of pine trees in the afternoon light, and I placed my jacket against me as a pillow support. It can help to be comfortable while sketching, and little things like this can make a difference. This concludes this particular sketchbook and the 1st complete!

My sister Jenna got me these two pocket sketchbooks about 10 yrs ago (this one was blank for yrs) and just last yr I started drawing again and with a new interest. When you love something or are curious about it, your love and attention will show somewhere in the art.

See what I mean ^ 😊.

I think I will do a little show of the completed book maybe next week.



Also read my thoughts on the poetry book, Field Work by Seamus Heaney.
