This front yard is a real forest - overgrown with all colors of roses, digitalis and many other plants.
Here is a picture I took while sketching on the spot (twit-twit: http://twitpic.com/52eki5)

This is a collage of my museum impressions from the recent trip to Spain.
I enjoy going through museum redrawing things in my own way :)
Previously I had a few cases when I was told it's not allowed, but in Prado, where people are not allowed to take photos but many are still trying to, my sketchbook attracted a lot of positive attention :) Some kids were following me discussing if they are allowed to take a picture of my sketchbook with that painting :)

Unfortunately I did not know most of them - but had a great time looking through some sketchbooks and talking to Lapin :) He has an amazing little studio where he works with a bunch of really interesting folks!
