Since the Corona disaster, many botanical gardens have been closed, and although I have been sketching at home or on the nearby riverbanks, I have been reluctant to go to the botanical gardens. However, with the season of autumn leaves coming, I felt like going there for the first time in a long time.

As usual, I wore a mask and took the bus and subway to get there. It was still early in the season for the leaves at the botanical garden as a whole, but some of the trees were turning red beautifully, so I thought it would be interesting to see the scenery with a mixture of red and green leaves, so I started painting.

I thought it would be interesting to see a mixture of red and green. Then I changed the location and painted the second one, which was good because I was able to get darker and more vivid colors from the leaves.

The park was also in full bloom with sasanqua and camellia flowers. So I decided to try a motif I hadn't painted yet, a small water mill in the park. The trees were easy to draw with the lines of their branches, but the waterwheel was difficult to draw because it was spinning and made of solid wood. But the waterwheel was difficult to draw because it was spinning and made of solid wood. In addition, I was in the shade, so it got colder and colder....... But I managed to finish the painting. This third sketch is my favorite of the day, with the Camellia sinensis growing on the right.

Today's sketches were all done in pencil and transparent watercolor on watercolor paper sketchbooks.
After three sketches, I had lunch and went home.

コロナ禍以降、植物園も休園したりすることが多くて、家にあるものとか近所の河原とかでスケッチはしていましたが植物園へ行くことがおっくうになっていました。でも紅葉の季節を迎え久しぶりに行こうかという気になりました。

例によってマスク着用でバスと地下鉄を乗り継いでいきました。植物園の紅葉は全体としてはまだ早い感じでしたが、木によっては見事に紅葉しているのもあったので、紅葉と緑の混じった風景もまた面白いと思って描き始めました。

1枚目は少し全体的に色が薄くなりました。そして場所を変えて2枚目を描いて、これは濃い鮮やかな葉の色が出せてよかったです。

園内はサザンカやカンツバキの花も満開でした。そこでまだ私が描いていないモチーフ、園内にある小さな水車小屋に挑戦してみることにしました。木々は枝の線を交えてすいすいと描くことができますが、水車は回っているし木材をがっしり組んでいることもあって難しかったです。おまけに日陰にいたのでだんだん寒くなり……。でもなんとか頑張って描き上げました。右側にカンツバキが生えていてこの3枚目のスケッチが今日のお気に入りです。

今日のスケッチはすべて水彩紙のスケッチブックに鉛筆と透明水彩で描きました。
3枚描いたあと、昼食を食べて帰りました。
