Afternoon Shadows-Study; Oil on Canvas 8″ x 10″

I was flipping through my sketchbook and came across some sketches made a couple years ago during a walk through a local forest preserve. It is fun that after a couple of years and changes, or growth, in my art that I can see an old sketch and yet see something new. Something that I did not see, or was not able to see before.

Played with the sketched design by cropping. Although this was fun to create and I liked the color effects, I did not feel that the design was worthy to be taken to a larger canvas. But it was fun to play with this little painting.

Note to those reading this blog; sketch whenever and wherever possible. Take and use your sketchbook when going for a walk, or just going somewhere to hang out. Fill that book with sketches. Then, take time to look through your older sketchbooks. It will help confirm that you are improving in your drawing skills, your confidence and your designs. Based upon your reviews, allow yourself to revisit a sketch and create a painting based on your current level of expertise. Go with the flow and have fun.
