A third place that really shows the depth of the picture is in the lower right corner where there are several plants strongly highlighted by the sun. The combination of large size, a lot of detail and contrast with the dark, shadowy leaves behind really bring them to the front of the picture.
In keeping with my post from yesterday concerning journal drawing, I decided to do another quick sketch today. On my bookshelf is a compass I bought several years ago at LL Bean in Freeport ME. I really like the compass but, you know, I have never actually used it for navigation. I generally know where I am, or which direction I need to go when I am hiking and have never really had an occasion to use it. Anyway, I like how it looks and it caught my eye today as an item to sketch. This drawing was done with a Micron pen and colored pencil. In the future I will periodically post my daily sketches here along with my major projects.
