Baseball Sketch and More

My session here started with posting the previous post I wrote on Saturday morning.  Never hit send or publish.  Sigh.....

I sketched at the game on Sunday in the travel sketchbook with the Micron 01 and added colored pencil when I got home.  I intended to do several sketches at the ballpark, but time got away and I keep score so can't sketch during the game.

 For Scavenger Hunt 497 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1427766

Number 1 orange and Number 2 white - the Texas Longhorns clothing and signs
Number 3, outdoor seating
Number 4, people

There was too much for such a small sketch, but it was good to do it.  The West Virginia colors were blue and yellow.

Today I sketched at the dining table in the huge book with the Micron 01.  (You can see a post about the big book here  https://jocastilloartblog.blogspot.com/2016/01/happy-new-year-sketches-for-hunt-434.html

The sketch from the previous Hunt is first, I wanted to show the whole page today.

Number 5, from my purse - aspirin
Number 6, body part - hand
Number 7, cooking tool - a couple, the hand blender and a jar opener

Sunday's ball game was great.  It was Senior Day and a tribute to Bill Little that has been the information director.  http://www.dailytexanonline.com/2014/08/28/longtime-sid-bill-little-steps-away-after-decades-of-service  Mr. Little will continue to do a few baseball games, I think.  He makes it so interesting as he can talk about the players, their fathers and grandfathers, uncles and brothers that played at The University of Texas.  He will definitely be missed.  As he says, times are changing.


Honoring Bill Little with his family and coworkers.

The seniors did well, too.  Kacy Clemens hit a grand slam home run in the first inning to start things off.  His brother, Kody, was on base to make it more special.  The Horns won 9 - 4 so that was good, too.  Zane Gurwitz had a couple of great doubles.

And the amazing Van Gogh clouds.

You can see a lapse time photo on Joanna's Instagram:  

Joanna has mostly music videos, but she has baseball and other interesting stuff.  Shots at baseball taken with her binoculars and iPhone, like this one:

I'm trying to drag on the baseball season.  We didn't go to as many games this year and that makes it seem all too short.  They play in Oklahoma City, Wednesday night at 7:30 or so.  Time depends on the previous three games of the day.  They have 45 minutes between games and if there are extra innings, etc.    You can see the schedules and news of the Big 12 Tournament here:

See you back here soon....

Fun to see your sketches and the photos from the day. I enjoyed Joanna's video.

Joan, thanks. Those clouds were amazing. Looked very painted into the sky with thick brush strokes. It was a great evening.

I though by Senior Day you got in free or something :) I would love to go to OKC for the tournament, but I doubt we make it. The mom's are our life right now.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, we aren't going to the tournament this year either. I think it will get moved to Texas in a couple of years. Attendance is down they say.... Attendance is down at The Disch, too. But the parking is bad and very little space to tailgate. Construction now of parking garage and a new tennis facility. See what happens by next year. This year our parking was at a garage about 3/4 of a mile away, but bus provided. We walked. The last few games we parked at the handicapped spaces about a city block away, they provide golf carts for the folks that can't walk or won't walk. Ha. Bus lines are long after the games.

Jennifer Rose, thanks. Forgetting a post isn't as bad as some other forgetful events. Ha.
