Back home at the Hunny House in Portland after driving for 2+ hours to get from Eugene back to Portland, I’ve spent the better part of my day, and well, weekend working on a series of drawings that I hope to share very soon.
Just in time to watch one of the first buds opening on the lilac trees. Working with such limited light, it was very challenging trying to get such colors to really pop out. Using some light bouncing trickery, I was able to give this budding branch some well deserved exposure and use boke to naturally obscure the ugly background. Today was a good day.
