Apples and Grapes
Such a busy weekend for us -- a bit of work, visits with the grands, C having to work ... but enough time to get in a longish sketch. This was from a photo reference. I wanted to sketch a few more apples and grapes in honor of the season.. Allof our apples have been dried and placed in the freezer for holiday gifts and we just didn't have time to squeeze in a visit to the grocery store!
The rain and even cooler nights have really brightened the colors of the trees --and already some of the leaves have dropped. I spotted a few sycamore and tulip poplar with bare limbs!
