A Walk in the Woods

Last week, I wrote about A Poppy’s Life, and of the sketching/watercolor class I took through our local library.  On a previous session, we visited a nearby state park locale, where we had class instruction, then took walks to see what we might like to try to sketch or paint on location.

  2. Very much so. I always enjoy visiting. Keep those pictures coming…

  3. Wow! I could almost smell the scent of the green leaves through your picture!! Amazing vision impact. Love the pictures in the wood!!!! Thanks!

  4. OH to have been there in person! I would have sketched these living beauties in words until the light faded 😉 Thank you so much for sharing.
