A short break in the Sierras, Part 2 of 2

The nice thing about staying in a place for longer than a few hours is you get to experiment and try variations on themes. Sometimes I’ll play with techniques, sometimes with new tools,and sometimes with formats.

An accordion fold book (or just a sheet of paper folded accordion style) is easy enough to carry around, and worked perfectly to capture this tall tree.

Here’s a closeup of a section of it.

Not everything I sketched was gigantic and majestic. A little woodpile caught my eye as did the many kinds of pine cones.

And here’s one last piece I did before we left.

There were lots of other starts at experimental stuff, some of which I might pursue, some which will stay as explorations, like this large charcoal drawing I started on that I really enjoyed doing.

If you missed it, here is Part 1 of my sketching adventure in the Sierras.
