While creating the digital print of Daffodils, I also worked with textures to create this drawing of a Blue Heron. There were quite a few herons that lived in the ponds next to the apartments so I had a lot of opportunities to watch them flying by.
Upon receiving an iPad, I immediately found some drawing apps to play with. I created a series of digital drawings, including these daffodils. They’re based on a real photo that I took near my apartment at the time.
Stayed for a few nights in the campground at Valley of the Rogue State Park in Oregon. It was a great launch place for visiting both Crater Lake and the Redwoods National Parks. On a rest day, I sketched this gnarly oak tree next to the campsite.
