This is a vacation week for our homeschool. While the public school kids started back to school today we are having a "Not Back To School" holiday with this week off from our usual school routine. One of the many perks of homeschooling. So we've been playing tourists in our little home town and generally relaxing. I have been making a lot of new art but nothing I am ready to show here. I did draw this little ACEO the other evening of our beautiful Blue Ridge mountains in the peak of summertime.

Beautiful - Looks so peaceful...

So, do you homeschool year-round, then? I'm always curious how others set up their years - because we were in a co-op our first few years, we tend to follow a school schedule, but I'd like to change it up...I don't like summer vacation ALL summer long...

Great color perspective... and peaceful atmosphere, I agree with Diahn.
I'm intrigued about the whole thing of homeschooling, that's something I've heard of a couple of times, but nothing you ever see in my country. It seems to be a daunting task... for instance, where do you obtain class material, what items to cover, omg!
Best regards,
Carolina

Hi,

This one is really good.
I like its almost impressionistic style, since although realistic it shows a painterly aspect.
The perspective is convincing due to a good use of chroma and values.

Kind regards,

José
