Seattle broke 90 degrees yesterday--which is too hot for me. Tina and I still got out sketching, in the shade at Twin Ponds Park in Shoreline.
I wasn't totally happy with this first effort--I tried to do too much, including everything in the scene, and wished that I had focused more on the tree and used less detail on the other stuff.
So when I started on the next view, I tried to simplify things a bit, and wasn't entirely successful, though it's a bit better.
I had trouble getting the main tree too dark, and I also kept fussing with the fallen tree, and just overworked everything in a desperate attempt to fix my mistakes. Oh, well. Every drawing is a learning experience.
