A couple of days ago I went to the same place I started the forest diary sketchbook on a grey afternoon in January 2009. I started with a humble sketch in ink, black and white,which still reminds me of those insecure days when the financial crisis hit.
Now at beginning of autumn 2011 the scenery is much different with lots of leaves and the undergrowth developed and the general outlook is not that grim anymore, but life has changed a lot and permanent since 2008/2009 for many of us.
Until end of the year I hope to finish a paper back facsimile re-print of the entire sketchbook with some extra text and “technical” information on these sketches. As usual I will publish on Blurb (Editionh on Blurb)
The acorns were coming down almost like rain and hit my sketchbook and color trays. No wonder that the soil around me is disturbed by wild boars.
I proceeded in this sketch again from back to front of the scenery.
