I hadn't walked at this park, in Windsor CA, in a good long while. This time of year it's really gorgeous, and one of my favorite places to be, especially on a foggy morning. The dead grasses which cover the ground and seem like so much hay, when the sun is out, take on a rich amber glow on gray mornings such as this one. I was so busy feasting my eyes that I sort of forgot to draw until close to the last minute. I didn't much like the sketch while I was drawing it, but when I looked at it a day later it wasn't so bad. The sun had come out by the time I began drawing but I was in a steep ravine where the shadows still held some mystery and then gave way to bright, sunny open space.
