I've also tried another street scene in my sketchbook and I think I am beginning to get a bit better at it. Sketching with pen is messy, but I have to remember not to take the pen off the paper so much so that I get a sketchier rendition with texture built in.
I thought I would show you one of the hubster's latest projects. Don't you just love this?!
It is supposed to be another hot day, but now they are predicting a 60% chance of rain and thunder showers. I'm hoping to work on my still life a bit today and maybe start a watercolor. This time I am just going to start with a wash and then let it dry before trying to add more to it. I need an overseer to slap my hands and take the brushes away when I get impatient and try to go into a painting before the previous layer is completely dry.
We are going out to dinner later to celebrate our anniversary and I think the hubster is going to the Farmers' Market in Holt in the morning. He has Adirondack chairs, walking sticks with wood burned art on them, the wishing well above, a variety of signs - all hand made, all of wood.
I still have some space available in my August 13th Intro to Repurposed Books class at Small But Mighty Arts in Haslett. All students will have a lovely hand made blank journal at the end of the class. All materials are supplied. For more information, click on the Workshops/Classes tab at the top of this page.
I think I hear the treadmill calling again - sometimes I swear I hear that thing calling me in my sleep. So far I am doing an hour a day and am feeling very disciplined. I hope to keep it up.
I hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend. I hope to "see" you again on Monday.
