Well, I didn't mean to miss posting last week, but the days just got away from me. Here are two recent sketches. This was the view beyond the tennis courts where Kiddo was having her tennis lesson, sketched with a black grape colored pencil and then watercolor. Spring is very slowly coming to our southern mountains.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon I sat on the back deck and sketched these happy pansies, watercolor only. And as much as I try I can't seem to get good scans from this sketchbook without those pesky shadowed spots. I had thought this heavier watercolor paper would lay more flat, yet it doesn't. I don't mind a little warping of the pages in my sketchbooks, as they are "sketchbooks" after all. But it does annoy me to see those shadows in the scanned images. Ah well, so it goes.
