|9/10/17 Maple Leaf neighborhood|
This morning Facebook reminded me that exactly two years ago, I posted the sketch of this aspen in the neighborhood (below). I was curious about what it looked like today, so I walked up the street a few blocks. Although it’s starting to turn, it has a lot less yellow today (at left) than it did in 2015 (and it seems to have grown a bit more shaggy, too). Last year I didn’t sketch it until the first of October, when it was almost entirely yellow.
I enjoy sketching the same trees every fall to track their changes and how they differ from year to year. I had been thinking the trees were starting to turn a bit early this year, but they are obviously later than in 2015.
Great trees! Really like your greens too!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Cathy! I've been working on picking out a good selection of greens for trees, and this one seems to be working.Delete
Great to see the difference from one year to the next!ReplyDelete
What's really cool is that it's something I couldn't really compare until I started sketching!Delete
The way you sketched this year blends the greens nicely. Great work.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Ching!Delete
