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!

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!

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