Sketches for New Hunt #424

I sketched on the porch and in the living room.  I had my feet propped up in both cases.  :)  I did a page in the large sketchbook with a Prismacolor 01 fine line marker/pen.

Number 1, growing
Number 2, loud - the shop vac was on the porch
Number 3, has strings - a charango from Bolivia (No, none of us play.  Maybe Joanna will learn.)
Number 4, has knobs - the doors on the fireplace/TV stand
Number 5, coffee table

They say thinking and planning is a big part of painting, so that must be what I am doing about painting!

Here is an old one for you to think about:

Magdalena Mountain Sun
10 x 8 inches
Oil on Canvas

I saw a photo of some fall foliage from NM. It made me want to do a pastel. I'm thinking anyway.

Oh, Bag Blog, I'm excited for you. I am anxious to see what you do.

I'm a little frightened by that vacuum. It looks like it's ready to take over the world! :-)

I would love to learn to play the charango but don't know that it will happen. It sure is a beautiful instrument!

Joanna, the good thing about that vacuum is that it is not big! It is only about 18 inches tall and 12-15 inches in diameter. Good for the porch and cars especially. Can be a wet vac as well.
You may just get to learn to play, you can practice when you are waiting on your music! A friend of Kathy Street is going to look at it to see if she can fix it. She has one herself.
