More Waiting Room Art

The other day I made a trek to the doctors office for my annual poke and prod session and did some sketching while I did the obligatory wait. I spied the lights over the reception desk and decided to sketch them.

When I went to one of my sketching classes I showed some of my sketches done during the week between classes to the other folks in the class. Someone mentioned that they looked like wine glasses from their viewing angle (upside down).

Dabbling in Color

Well, I have finally scanned another sketch class effort. I first sketched the flower with pen and then added the watercolor. It was fun, but I can really see that I need some help and practice with the colors.

Hopefully I will get more opportunities to work with this approach.

Last Class of Summer

The last class of the summer we went to the National Botanical Garden and did our sketching. I started with a charcoal pencil for a while.

Then I switched back to Pen for these.

I used white charcoal pencil for highlites.
