The edge of the Parkville water fall

Spent the beautiful day outside. Went for a hike and painted the water fall. I'm not sure it really captures what's going on - but I like it as a sketch anyway. 

And these roots were twisty and wonderful

Science room animals

I'm a substitute teacher for 7th grade science today. The room has all kinds of animals that the kids are free to take out and play with. So cute.

Backs of kids heads

Drawn with a mechanical pencil - which someone had left behind in a previous class - so I thought I'd give it a try. And I didn't hate it like I usually do. Then another kid stole that mechanical pencil. So now I dont have one. The circle of writing implements flows on. (Cue dramatic music)

I've been trying to sketch people and they are still frustrating me. I grabbed a book at the library: secrets to drawing heads. The first secret is to do it a lot quickly to practice proportion maps and get it really second nature. This was surprisingly fun :)

Listening to music at Coda

Bass player from Them Pickless Fools

Toby listening - he doesn't sit still for long :) makes sketching tricky

Jesse playing pinball

I bought myself a new pocket watercor box!! The smallest one I could find so I can have it in my purse always. So excited :)
