Aspen Meadow

Sketch of a green meadow with flowers and aspen trees by Sarah Sullivan

Aspen Meadow

Right now in early August there are huge meadows filled with flowers and rimmed by aspen trees, mountains and sky in the San Juan Mountains. Before I leave Colorado next Friday, I plan to do a large painting of one of these meadows. I am getting ready by sketching small meadows in a 5 X 8 inch sketchbook with gouache and pastel.  This meadow has huge daisies and I need to work on getting them to seem in proportions with the other flowers.

    This sketch has a pleasing diagonal “rule of thirds” balance.
