I’ve accumulated a few good sketches in June but have been negligent in posting them. So here’s a month’s worth at one time.
At the beginning of the month we visited Lucy again, then 2 1/2 months old. She's such a cutie, and a great model too.
I drew this sketch of the view of a cloud-filled sky from the field out back.
This is the arbor I built along the side of the house.
June's plein air outing was to Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam, NH. I drew this pencil sketch of one of the rhododendron tunnels along the walking paths with the thought of perhaps doing a scratchboard of it.
A pen and ink figure drawing from the end of the month.
Some of the best work I've done isn't hanging on a wall; it's sitting in a box in my closet that's full of my old sketch books. I fill up one or two books each year. Some of the sketches end up as a basis of a more formal work, but most don't. They’re more important to me as a pictorial diary and also as on-going training; learning to really see and to understand shape, light and color.
This blog is to share my sketches as well as my sketching experiences.
