Clementine Triangle

The big book called again for a sketch.  I worked at the dining table with a Micron 005 in sepia/brown tone and added some colored pencil.  Quickly as I get so bored coloring.  It is supposed to be calming but makes me want to stop and put the pencils down.  I numbered them wrong as I forgot that  I had sketched in the travel sketchbook previously. Alas....

Number 3, triangle - the shape of my layout
Number 4, spherical - the Clementines

They were arranged flat on the table like billiard balls but my sketch makes them looked a bit like they are stacked.  I guess it is sort of a triangle either way.

It is National Margarita Day we are told.  Guess we will venture out to Guadalajara if they have food and partake of a margarita.  Gene can make me one of his famous ones tonight.

This is from my blog, some time ago.

Gene made these in Kentucky a few years ago, also on my blog previously.

And a sketch from Angel Fire.  The margaritas at Jeb's were almost as good as Gene's.  I prefer them without Triplesec.

So cheers!



After I posted this I realized I hadn't posted Number 1 and 2.  On Saturday it was nice outside and the Longhorns were playing baseball in Arlington at the Texas Rangers stadium.  I couldn't get the game streaming so we went out and sat in the car in the sun and listened to the game.  It was so warm we had to put the windows down.

I sketched in the 7 x 10 inch Canson Mix Media sketchbook with a Micron 02. You can click to see larger.

Number 1, landscape - still a bit of snow under the trees
Number 2, near at hand - the gear shift in the new car.  Hard to get used to a dial for changing gears.  Not easy to learn new things.

The Longhorns lost their first two games.  They play today at 230 p.m.  Hope to be able to listen.  Hook 'em Horns!

Upon first glance, I thought they were pumpkins - probably the color. Arranging them like billiard balls made me laugh - I could just picture someone standing by with their cue stick waiting to break the clementines. I do love a good margarita.

Bag Blog, ha! I think I might try using the clementines for pool if I had too many Margaritas. I sure like them. Messy, eh?

I have a hard time seeing triangles to sketch. Some artists see them in spokes of wheels or windows, etc. Joe on the current hunt put, "Three sided - Jo does not like triangles." So I'm "famous" for that.
