Bus Line II

Day 23 #stradaeasel
When the bus actually arrives, the people and the space between between them is not so relaxed.

Bus Line

Day 22 #stradaeasel
My new sketchbook does not like watercolor. It beads up, rolls around and goes through the paper.

Tree and Sky Patterns

Day 19 #stradaeasel
These are the under lying patterns in the woods I wanted to catch for today. However, it rather quickly it became to dark to see the rest of the forms I waned, so this it it for the day.

An Experiment

Day 17 #stradaeasel
More of the same woods only I set a time limit of 45 minutes for today's painting. The idea being when the time was up, the painting was finished — no matter what it looked like, so here it is.

A Favorite Place

 Day 16 #stradaeasel
Over night the snow slid off the trees and bushes, the hemlock lifted back to where it used to be, and the bamboo is almost back to normal. What a difference 8 hours can make. Now we have blue sky, sunshine, and just a little snow on the ground in the front garden.

Posted yesterday on fb. Just noticed I forgot to hit "Publish" on this site. Today's image will come a little later.

Snow Patterns

 Day 14 #stradaeasel
Snowed lightly this morning. By late afternoon a little windows of golden light came through the trees. I tried to capture some of them in my sketchbook.
