Final Crack at the L.A. Palm Trees, January 23, 2011

Los Angeles Palms and Flag

Los Angeles Palms and Flags

This is my final evening in Los Angeles.  I decided to set up one more time for a crack at the palm trees.  After doing these two sketches, I felt fatigue setting in.  I’ve was in meetings all day for International Baccalaureate Diploma training Saturday and Sunday.  Friday I was wearied by rising at 5:00 a.m. and flying to the West Coast, retiring to bed around midnight, west coast time.  It has all caught up with me!  At any rate, I’m grateful that I was able to get outside in the sunny climate three consecutive days to capture some palm trees with a combination of dry brush and wet-on-wet gestures.  Tomorrow I return to Texas.

Thanks again for reading.

    Isn’t it relaxing to sketch – even when I’m tired it is a source of joy. Your lively sketches give us CA at its finest!

    I share your sentiments about sketching. Even if the final results are not satisfying, the process certainly is–every time. Yesterday afternoon provided the finest decompression. I’m just glad to have those kinds of moments in the midst of busy days.
