Sketching XL Again and Larry Castillo Photographer

I decided last night to do a special sketch for the humongous book that was not a Scavenger Hunt item.  I tried to capture the big tree between our house and the westerly lake.

I used a Micron o3.  I need more practice to make it look like that particular tree. Branches should be longer, especially on the left.  Interesting tree.  Humongous, too.  Ha.

Today, I did the Scavenger Hunt sketch in the big book as well with a Micron Brush Pen to make it go a bit faster in XL size for a sketch.  :)

Number 13, beverage in container - Chocolate wine
Number 14, used to measure - cup
Number 15 - shovel or scoop - coffee scoop

And both pages together.  So now on day seven, I have 4 pages done.  Only 591 more to go.  Leaving 2 pages blank (4 sides) at front and back and one page (both sides)  for the Title Page.  Wheeeeeee.....
(I will not be keeping track of how many to go!)

So proud of you and your drawings, Jo! You inspire me and many others to keep working at it!!

Thanks, Regina. I have to thank you for being my painting buddy and keeping me painting. Sue Modrak got me sketching and the Hunts guilt me into keeping on. Ha. You inspire me, too. :) Need to figure out on Google or Skype how to have a virtual paint together one of these days.

Larry's webpage is very nice. I looked through the Seven Deadly Sins - pretty awesome. I will look more closely when I get a chance. I hate to miss anything.
