Life Sketches

I haven't been doing nearly as much sketching from life as I intended to do this summer. Still, last year I did exactly none, so anything is an improvement, really. I just need to get over the embarrassment of sketching in public and to be a little quicker about whipping out the sketchbook in dead moments.

Anyway, here's the last two sketches I did from life. Here's my husband eating a cheese stick on one of our Sunday bike rides:

And here is a drawing of my front yard that I've been doing a little at a time, sitting on my front stoop on rainy days.

I'm planning to colour that last one using some of the watercolour pencils I picked up last month.
