One Grand ole’ Tree – Day 26/31 #WorldWatercolorMonth

When I go walking in the meadows, its easy to loose track of time, the early morning mist, the dewdrops still clinging to the leaves and blades of grass, the gentle crunch of the footpath, the sweet birdsongs that fill the air, and of course the changing colors of the season that envelop you! During summer, in places you could be completely dwarfed by the wildflower brush.

I’ve walked these routes enough to know my mile markers, and when I get to two miles on my route, before entering the meadows, I pass by this giant tree with a trunk and lower branches of such character. The photo and sketch do not do it justice, but I’ve been facinated by it and have wanted to sketch it for quite some time now. Here are a few of my first attempts. I’m certain I’ll be doing more in the days to come.
