Remembering Warmer Days

Today we have had more snow than any December. It is cold and windy. So I thought I would think of a warmer time. I was sitting on the deck and began sketching my grill. As I progressed I realized I had managed to capture another image within the grill. I realized that the reflections that captured in the grill was actually a picture of my house.

What do you unintentionally capture in your drawings?
Another warmer day at the beach.

Back to Work I Go

I rejoined the workforce this week after 10 months of semi-retirement. You would think that I should have lots of time to sketch and post, but alas the to-do list seems to get in the way.

I have managed a few sketches from time to time, just not found the time to get them posted. This morning was a good opportunity for me to get something posted. I found a new pencil the other day and finally ordered one. It is the MLP2 Zebra, a 9mm 2B flat lead mechanical pencil. This morning I made a quick sketch while I was at the coffee shop.

Better detail of the sketch.
