August 2011: Drawing with Kids - Strawflowers

As posted before I am going through a process of conquering my sketchbook paper through making a series of drawings and paintings of these fiery strawflowers. Today a bunch of kids joined me in the process and here are results:

August 2011: New Sketchbook - fighting with paper

I got a new sketchbook and it's... different. Watercolor looks bleak and paper buckles, it also retains blotches of off-color after you add even smallest amount of water. And it makes lots of inks act semi-not-waterproof. Of - and many markers bleed like crazy on it. Overall - a challenge :)

I like writing/drawing down snippets of conversation in cello class :)
