Fall Art & Harvest Season...

Being one of the last days of September,
Deanna and I enjoyed the mild temperatures,
and a beautiful fall day together this week.

We made the most of this time by starting with
 a walk in the woods,
 while we searched out a place that spoke to us.

 It's an art day and a
 perfect day
for plein air painting!

Deanna chose to capture the pears in a pastel painting,
 before they get picked.

I found that the morning light on this maple tree called out to me. 

Starting with a gestural pen sketch in my art journal, 
I then added a bit of color with watercolor crayons.

Then it was time to get the pastels out and work on a
little landscape.

After a break for lunch, 

and a bit of garden harvesting,

 the afternoon was spent under the shade of the apple tree
with my art journal, pen and watercolor crayons.

It was a full day of art and friendship!
