July 2013: Visit to Villa Montalvo

July 2013: Villa Montalvo by apple-pine 
Sunny and a bit too hot for my liking. But shadow created amazing purples. Renovation. Some new expositions, some old. I am still not sure I have capacity to relate to the metal pegs is beautiful araucaria tree as an art form...

I enjoyed my travel chair while painting only to leave it at the center - and now it's gone :(

1st Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers Sketchcrawl

1st Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers Sketchcrawl I had a BLAST today - sketching with a whole bunch of people around San Francisco during 1st Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers Sketchcrawl :)

I got sunburned (who would have thought - I had three jackets with me anticipating "normal" San Francisco weather :)

Some birds tried to mark my sketches.

Some smells from the farmer's market made me draw veggies instead of people and buildings.

Many sketchers looked at my sketchbook. 

At some point people in line to get lunch blocked my view and while I refused to give up and continued glancing through them, they kept asking if I am standing in line or "just drawing here" :) Upon receiving my answer some would stand a bit aside and some would just get closer to me, yet some would take out their camera and literally get between me and my sketch :) It was fun - zoo like fun! (and I love sketching in zoos :)

When you eat ice-cream you forget about many things...

June 2013: Reading

June 2013: Reading by apple-pine
One of the great things about this gray-colored paper was that I started to write much more to add to my sketches. Anything - from the notes about the sketch to the notes about what I was reading - online or in a book.
