Sketches and Good Habits

I sketched outside for Scavenger Hunt 417 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1386204  yesterday afternoon.  It was warmer in the sun than in the house!



Number 4,  leaf- I sketched some from a vine and some from a weed
Number 5, thumb folded into your hand

You know I follow many blogs.  One of the artists that I like is Lori McNee http://www.finearttips.com/loris-original-art/  She is generous and knowledgeable.  You can learn a lot from reading her articles and tips.

This article is on Artists Network, 20 ways to Create Better Work Habits in Your Studio.  I should practice more of these ideas as in "practice what you preach".

The house cleaners came and now the house smells and looks great.  It is very windy, though, and I may have to close the door to keep out the dust.  Oh, Fair New Mexico!
