Loads of sketches to share - hope to organize and scan them tomorrow!

I had a great time drawing this though I forgot my water bottle and ended up using the last drags from all the waterbrushes :)

Lady who lives in the house started watering plants when I was almost done - and asked to see the final sketch. She liked it a lot - it was a great morning - especially since I found some wonderful irises when I was leaving - will come back to draw them some other day :)

Drawing almost completely blindly - it's very interesting to compare my memory with the result I see in bright light later in the day :)

Sketching while waiting and in the park - after lunch. I am yet to add color to anything in this sketchbook - I think I love this color too much :)

Drawing after running is always a bit of a challenge - but always feels great :)

This was a very clear, winter-like morning - after first rains of the season. Even smog over the valley did not ruin the feeling - only made everything else look cleaner.
