Hunting the Sun

It was very nice yesterday and is shaping up nicely today as well.  I am enjoying the warmth.  My fingers are always cold so 80 degrees would be perfect for me.

Scavenger Hunt 353 is almost over.  I managed to hunt down the sun this morning and sketched in my large sketchbook on about 1/6th  of a page.  I sketched with the Prismacolor Premier 03 and colored in with some colored pencil.

Number 8, sun with the challenge of shadow in the same sketch.  This is out the dining room window about 8 a.m. or so.  The shadows across the grass and flowers is so striking.  There are some more big pines to the left that make the shadows across the field.  Not too many wildflowers yet.  Mainly some yellow ones.

I did this painting a couple of years ago.  There were a good assortment of flowers then and the evening sun, but still lots of shadows.  This is a bit to the right of the area I sketched this morning and you can see a bit of the south lake.

I don't think I have ever seen "Porch View" before. It is really nice. I love your fruits and veggies in the later post, too!

Hi Bag Blog, Porch View was painted to replace a painting that was lost in the big fire. It was View from my Kitchen Window at the other house of the trees in our other yard. :)

I was gonna say I didn't remember "Porch View" either and now I see why. I like it.
