We opened pool season quite early this year - but this is my first instance this year when my time by the pool spent only sketching :)

Mat 20, 2012: Solar Eclipse
Notes on the event:
- We had a VERY COOL set-up with the binoculars and were able to monitor progress closely and share it with a whole bunch of people - from friends to just random folks passing by!
- Drawing how the moon makes it's progress was very beneficial: the trajectory was not what we all expected :)
- Amazing shadows all around us - all crescent-shaped!

Waiting Game

I spent tome time waiting today and instead of staying inside went for a walk in the neighborhood - and found this curious bush and some dry twigs and seed pods to draw :)
 May 2012: Treasure Hunting
I stopped to look at two yellow birds feeding on seeds very close to me - but I was not quiet enough while getting my pen out and they flew away.

oh - and here is a snapshot of my work-in-progress:

I am trying to identify these flowers - so please leave me a comment if you know what they are :) May 2012: Little Garden May 2012: Little Garden

I keep using my waiting time looking in the mirror and at backs of a whole bunch of models exercising. Some exciting development on the stretching front - now they are supposed to do a telephone: put your foot to your ear as if it's a phone :)

Great time in the woods! Not enough sketching time though - nasty flies made us wrap-up our sketching pretty quickly...

I love characters in any waiting room - up until they see that I am drawing them... see that lady on the left - she was telling someone on the phone about me... good thing I was next in line!
