It’s been a busy week. My granddaughter was planning to come over today and visit with us but hubs got sick last night and we decided to postpone it until next week. I did take some photos in the yard this afternoon. I am looking for some photos to practice sketching. Yes, I’m taking another class. I’m taking Alisa Burke’s class, Sketchbook Delight, that actually began last month. I have been watching the first few videos and I am enjoying it immensely. I was looking for things with a lot of texture and contrast and here are some of the photos I took outside today:
This a stump from a Mimosa Tree that we had cut down about three years ago. It was scored to hasten its decaying process.
A close up of one of the succulent plants that made it through winter.
We have lots of rocks here in the Ozarks and this is a fine speciman…look at all the color and contrast.
This little half decayed leaf is looking rather shabby after going through winter.
And this Dandelion is getting an early start. It’s looking as if we’ll have another good “crop” of them in the backyard this spring.
