The day after our mini heatwave when it got up in the 90s, clouds rolled in, and the temperature suddenly dropped nearly 30 degrees. It was a relief, though a somewhat shocking one when I stood on the Green Lake walking path feeling chilly for the first time in weeks!
|House on E. Green Lake Way N.|
To warm up, I turned toward Green Lake Way, where so many magnificent old houses face the water. I picked one that I’ve always admired. I don’t know what that architectural style is called, but its very complex roofline looks like a hooded cloak. It was challenging enough as a thumbnail; I’m glad I didn’t attempt it any larger.
After that, I made a 90-degree turn to face the walking path looking north, where one of my favorite trees leans heavily toward the path. Next to it is one of many lakeside weeping willows.
Color note: The sketch at top of post is one of my first with a new late-summer primary triad – with a twist. Details coming soon of my palette shakeup and much-needed bag shakeout.
