I've been sketching a lot of plants in my yard. But in June, the plants weren't speaking to me. I hopped in my car and drove around. One thought was to sketch at the vegetable stand, but there were way too many people for me to feel socially distanced enough. Back into the car and down the road I went. I then remembered a rather good sized drainage pond around the building where my dentist has their office. It was a good choice.
I found a tree lit by sunlight against a shaded background. And, I was able to paint it from my air conditioned car - an extra bonus given it was one of our first humid days.
