Sketchbook Tuesday - Trees

Busy days lately. I still haven't established a workable routine for myself since we started back full time with our homeschooling schedule a few weeks ago. I suppose I was spoiled with summer's lack of structure. Now that we are back at the books my days just slip away. When I realized how long it had been since I had scribbled anything in my sketchbook (or work on any other art), I stole a few moments last Saturday to sit in the sunshine on the deck and play with watercolor.

This has a real spontaneous feel to it, looks very fresh - just what watercolour does best but it can be hard not to overwork a piece - well at least for me! :-) A routine will come, might just take a bit longer. In the meantime, keep those watercolours handy.

Those few moments were well spent! Bright cheerful and wonderful use of color!

I'm so glad you stole those moments! Please feel free to steal many more. OK?

Such gorgeous, glowing colors . . . you are a marvel!

beautiful balance of light & colour which makes your trees dance across the page.

As with all of your sketchbook pieces, I just see such beauty and serenity, Ann. The verse on this page just resonates with me. And I have to agree...

I wish I had a deck that looked outon something so pretty! Great work, Ann.

Sometimes you have to make the time to sketch, this is lovely!

So pretty. Can hardly wait for fall to hit here.

I don't know which impresses me more - how adept you are at using loose marks that still form a coherent whole, or how nice your handwriting is.

Are those fall colors already?! Lucky you! It is my favorite time of year. Love the colors!

wonderful colors. I know it's fall, but somehow it reminds me of spring.

It's a lovely painting with really cheerful colours. Well done for snatching those few minutes to do it - so important.

Love the coloration of this! This is somewhat inspiring to me... I want to believe that the first object I drew was a tree, perhaps I should do that more often
