Hunting on 417 Sketches

Yesterday I sketched on the porch and in the car with my sketchbook and Micron 05 pen.  This morning I sketched at the table with my iPad and app, "Brushes".  I am blaming the wind yesterday for my wonky sketches.  It was not a nice day.  Looking out the window it looked fine, but when you went out, the wind was very strong.  The dust really brings on my hay fever.

Number 6, something to put your feet on - a mat for cleaning snow and mud by the door
Number 7, something that rolls - a tire from the house cleaners' car
Number 8, stuffed animal - a couple of small animals  that sit on the car dashboard.  I have sketched the bear, Gene's Chopo, before, he looks pretty sad here. 

Number 9, coffee cup - a cute baseball cup from this rent house.  It is  a half circle (like the baseball was cut in half), mine looks a bit taller.  I also took a photo of the table and sketched the cup on top of the photo.  There is  a plastic cover over the tablecloth, that is the glare/reflections.  I drew the reflections on the cup.

There are some good music shows going on at The Bugle Boy http://thebugleboy.org/events.php?status=active in La Grange while we are gone.  We listen/watch online when we can on Concert Window.  Good, but not the same as being there in person.  If you are close to La Grange, Texas, Gina Chavez will be there on Saturday and Bluehouse on September 11.   I would just love to see them both!! We will have to do Concert Window.  https://www.concertwindow.com/thebugleboy   You should go! Have fun either way!

After the wind, in Angel Fire.

Yesterday after school (which ends at noon) I had art with my lady friends. It was a good day, but I am behind on my blog reading. If it is not one thing, it is another.

Bag Blog, you at least have an excuse/reason to be behind. I just procrastinate!

Jennifer Rose, thanks. Something different to try anyway. I will try glass or something transparent one of these times.
