Color study detail 

Still keeping up with my sketches, but I must be honest its hard doing it everyday. It's summer vacation and some times I just want to lay around and do nothing.....

Hope you are enjoying your summer.

Sunday Sketches: Daily Vacation Sketches

Thursday I posted several watercolor drawings done in my sketchbook while was visiting my daughter in South Carolina.  I'm back home with lots of photographs taken during our trip and trying to sketch each  morning using my photo references.

Vacation Sketches

Last week my husband and I spent time visiting our daughter and her boyfriend in South Carolina.

Lucky for me I brought along my sketchbook hoping there would be some time to record our trip.
The first morning I woke up way to early and realized I didn't know how to use the remote on their TV and didn't have their security password to use my computer. Good lord what was I going to do with myself while waiting for everyone to wake up?  As fate would have it, while waiting for my coffee to brew I noticed a little frog jumping across their kitchen counter. Actual it startled me to death and I wasn't about to pick it up... when it accrued to me this would be an ideal time to draw in my sketchbook.   I quickly grabbed my supplies and a  morning ritual was started. 

  Hopeful I'll be able to continue this routine each morning with my cup of coffee;)
