Sketches and Photos

I sketched for Scavenger Hunt 337 in my regular sketchbook which is getting full, by the way, with my regular Prismacolor Premier 03 pen.  I haven't sketched much for this Hunt so I felt obligated.

Number 5, in a box - a wooden and glass painted box from Peru with some necklaces from Ecuador.  I might mention that for the Scavenger Hunts we sketch from life not photos.

I also sketched for the November Challenge in the Southwest Forum on wetcanvas where I am the host.  We sketch or paint from photos there.

This is from a photo I took in Magdalena a few years ago at the Old Timers Celebration.  I used a light pencil sketch for the size and added the ink.

It is cool and very fall like here today.  I will add a few photos to help you get acquainted with our neck of the woods.

Looking toward the northeast lake.

Fall color out back.

Oak Leaves

One of the trees we were given after the fire.

A few birds are coming to the feeders.

Looks like it is finally fall. I think our trees are going from colorful to bare pretty quick with all the wind.

Bag Blog, we haven't had the big winds, thank goodness. We might get a bit of rain today. Looking forward to that. That one little tree is the only one actually in our yard, so we don't have leaves to rake. Ha.

Love the old timer's sketch.

Thanks, Joanna. It was a couple of guys we know ... of course!
