Adirondack panoramasPosted: April 10, 2017
To pass the time on long car rides (when I am not the driver) I love to sketch panoramas. On the way down to New York City on Friday it was definitely the end of winter — lots of rain and even some sleet in the upper Adirondacks — but on the way home today it was clearly spring. The colours at this time of year are so subtle that you need to look hard to find them. But they’re there. Ochres and siennas in the dried grasses, deep purples in the mountains and the slightest touches of green as the trees start to feel the warmth of the sun. I usually sketch these in a book I keep mostly for this. Here are a few more I sketched on the drive from Nevada to Utah as we crossed a little corner of Arizona.
