This drawing is from a day out at Ochs Orchard in Warwick, NY. My kids collected tons of apples and drank apple cider. Taking time to paint and draw out doors is just so peaceful. It allows you to appreciate the uniqueness of the world we live in, especially for us city folks. The fun challenge of drawing nature is translating the immense variety of colors that exists within the family of greens, browns, blues, yellows and other colors.
