In May of 2021, when the U.S. was getting vaccinated and beginning to open back up from COVID-related restrictions, my family took a week’s vacation to Bar Harbor, Maine. Rented a great place on the water, overlooking Acadia Park, Bar Harbor, and Cadillac Mountain. House was nestled into a beautiful pine and oak tree forrest. Had a nice bench on a walkway to the front door. Loved sitting on that bench and sketching. Couldn’t bring my full kit as we didn’t have room in the car. So, settled for sketching using the program Procreate on my IPad. All the trees were just beginning to pop – the new leaves were all colors of green. And, some new growth on trees was tinged red/maroon – nice contrast with the greens. Loved the play of light and shadow on the branches, leaves, and tree trunks. Tried to capture the morning sunlight in this sketch.
