Summer is here. The kids are out of school and their new routines are in full effect. I could not be happier to get this year behind us. Scheduling was a nightmare last year. Luckily, next year is already all set. The kids are all signed up for their programs and nobody is on a waiting list.
I’ve been getting back into the swing of things too. I went into a bit of a slide for the first quarter of this year, but I’m back to running and drawing. I think I’m going to run a 5k or two this year but we’ll get to that later.
I’m working on a new drawing now. It is another one of those things I always wanted to draw but never did…
Bonsai trees are pretty cool right? There is a reason they slip in and out of popularity…
I always feel like something is lost when adding ink. I think it looses the subtle touch and pressure that shows in the graphite. I’ve always loved pencils more than ink.
I was actually surprised at how quick I was able to get this done.
Every once in a while I will draw something and it just doesn’t look like it is mine. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I toyed with adding more detail but I think I’m going to explore some different colors and coloring techniques.
This is phase two of the drawing. I don’t think I’m quite where I want to be with this yet but I like where it is heading.
Alright. Enough navel-gazing for this week.
