creatures at pet store

With the days getting shorter and the evenings darker, my Tuesday sketching group has started to find indoor locations where we can do what we do.  So last night (Oct. 25) we took our sketch pads to a pet store (Petco) at the El Cerrito Plaza. Despite arriving late I got into the groove quite easily and ended up with three sketches that I actually colored at the store with paints in an formerly empty Altoids box. (I usually add color when I return home.) I'm only posting two pictures, though, because my inner critic told me to.

pumpkins at market

My sketching group returned to the Monterey Market on Oct. 18 to capture pumpkins, at least on paper.

while i wait

When I'm out and about I often find myself waiting, in a line, by number, etc. So these latest photos were sketched at the pharmacy and at the beauty parlor.

Sketching not Posting

OK, I have been a little derelict in updating this blog. Here finally is the new stuff!!!
I'm at a funeral and sketching the back of people's heads. I was attentive, but I needed to do something instead of crying.

I did this quick sketch (of trees) during my lunch break. (sigh!)

Sorry for all the mess, but I was trying to sketch while on a BART train to San Francisco (10/2/11). What a challenge, I had to work fast before my models reach their destinations.
