This time of yearPosted: October 24, 2016
I love sketching in this weather so much that I went out twice today. What is it about this time of year that makes it so perfect? First of all, it’s chilly enough to have to sit in the car but not so cold as to be uncomfortable. The days are getting shorter too, which makes the afternoon shadows more interesting. And with the shorter days comes the colder temperatures, the bright leaves and a crisper quality of light.
With the wind we’ve been having, the cloud formations are very dramatic and they create a deep blue backdrop for the bright foliage. This short period of intense brightness and contrast precedes a much longer and less vibrant one, so I’ll try to get out as often as I can in the next few weeks before it all turns grey.
