Hidden Villa Visit

It was a very hot day and kids spent most of the time in the water ;)

Self Portrait after the run - learning to breathe

I do not look like this really. But this drawings tells me that when I concentrate on breathing right I loose my posture completely. Or may be it's the fact that I tried to concentrate on drawing and breathing at the same time... Looking at this I think I better do one thing at a time from now on ;)

I did a left-handed one about a month ago - a lot of fun! ;)

Two visits to the GYM

Two visits, from sketchbook #34 and 36 ;) I think I completely ignored drawing in GYM while working in #35 ;)

I think all kinds of animals like to sleep on warm laundry mountains!

In the park

I've been thinking that a lot of immediacy, relevance and being "here' which I enjoy in my sketching is lost when I post things month after... so I decided to start scanning my current sketchbook and posting simultaneously with catching up on previous two ;)

Oh, the SPIDER! He was HUGE!

Meet the Badger

This is the badger whose adventures will be logged here, mostly with brush and ink, sometimes with words.

He is learning how to write and is not aware of this new log thing I am doing.

In parks

I lost my pace a little with posting sketches - perhaps since I picked up my pace with drawing ;) These belong to a little moleskine book which happens to be sketchbook #34 since I started numbering them. I used Lamy pen with waterproof pen in it a lot and enjoyed different little hikes and did many quite personal and/or mediocre drawings. But those that are suitable for sharing are coming up in one large lump in the next couple of days ;)

I am almost done with rather large sketchbook #35 now and it has quite a few pages I would love to share and get your feedback about - so I better pick up my pace here ;)

Oh, and I am hoping to post more on Sketching in Nature as I had some rather interesting adventures recently!

My Backpack

It will probably take a whole sketchbook to draw everything that goes in it... ;)
