Back to the Farm

For sketching this week, we returned to Luscher Farm to take in the last few days of summer. It was surprising how quickly everything had wilted and faded since we were just there three weeks ago when it was all in full bloom.  I've been wanting to sketch artichokes for some time now so was happy to find a bush.

I forgot one of my painting lessons to avoid painting objects that are in full sunlight without many shadows.  It was hard to capture much depth in the bright light.  I'd like to give artichokes another try sometime.
