I took my coffee out there this morning and decided to sketch it. I think it is okay even though the flowers appear to be in front of the siding on the side of the house - I guess that is artistic license - or a mistake?? At any rate, here is what I've depicted:
|I haven't decided whether to add color or leave it as is.|
I also have a few more photos from the Battle Creek trip that I thought were good candidates for sketching at a later date. You may use these if you wish, and if you do I'd love to see what you end up with.
|This needs to be tweaked in Photoshop to fix the perspective. That is Dee on the left with her camera.|
It was a big weekend in Battle Creek while we were there - a hot air balloon festival, the Blue Angels flying show, and apparently an antique auto show. These vehicles were parked right outside our room and I couldn't resist taking pix.
Intro to Repurposed Books class update - I still have 8 openings in my class which is being held in Haslett on August 13. If you are interested, you can find more information under the Workshops/Classes tab at the top of the page.
It is another beautiful day here in southern Michigan. The hubster is working at the Maple Street Mall in Mason this afternoon and I am running errands in Jackson. I have a heavy sketching paper to take to the printer to be cut to size for my class and need to pick up a few grocery items.
The girls are due home some time today from their vacation in Myrtle Beach and I hope to see them. They are staying overnight on Thursday and we are going up to Leelanau for the weekend. It is sure to be a great time.
I hope you are having a great day and have set aside some time to make art.
