Sketching around

Value sketch of winter squashes

Value sketch of winter squashes

Before I went out of town, I was working on a value sketch of three winter squashes. I’ve transferred it to a 8″ square of Lanaquerella watercolor paper which is a new surface for me. I hope I remember to take in progress pictures for you. I was really glad to see I’d made some notes on colors and techniques to use, because the day I sketched this seems like years ago!

Thanks everyone for your kind words, encouragement and offers of support during this past month. It was a difficult time for our family, and I am so glad I made the trip up for my sister’s funeral and to visit with my family. It’s tough being geographically so far away from them.

Sketch of garden figure

Since being home I have been knitting, and getting back into the groove of life with two active teens/preteens, and doing a bit of sketching. It was fabulous to sit in our cooler weather one morning in the courtyard and sketch this garden figure.
