Looking Southwest

After drawing class at Cheekwood this morning, I was so hooked into drawing that I continued to do so, on and off, for the rest of the afternoon. When I manage to get the right sketch books to the scanner, I'll show you one or two. For now, here's the last I made in my back yard, as the sun was setting. If you've been following my blogs, you'll recognize this scene. It's a section of my favorite view from my favorite spot at the back of my studio. See more drawings of my back yard.

The bugs were biting and an opossum wandered out of the pokeweed, which was odd because it was still quite bright and the sun was still shining. I looked in on her and though I couldn't see her perfectly, it seemed like she might have some babies in her pouch.

I have a great group of drawing students at Cheekwood this session. I forced them to use pens on our first foray into landscape at the Japanese Garden. A challenge, but they were good sports about it. You can see some drawings I made in the Japanese Garden from last year.

Two Pears


These are some quick studies I made for one of my drawing students this morning as we ran through exercises in different mediums. Now, I can put them out to eat!



Pen and ink with wash

I did not get around to moving the pears before the afternoon sun, now in it's dramatic autumn slant, bathed them in a gorgeous light. (The morning light was very subtle). Come see my photograph of the pears in all their glory at My Great Day.

Come see my watercolors at Landscape into Art.

My private drawing student is working on birds so I worked along on one with her this morning. Lots of graphite on the page here and I had to give the scanner glass a good wipe down after scanning. Lots of hand washing, too. But fun.

after Pissarro

I am about to start new drawing classes and lessons and think that it's about time to put my own self back in the saddle in any way I can. This is a quick, edited study of a Pissarro that came to hand about the same time as my sketchbook and pencil.
