While I was walking and sketching yesterday I was gathering things to take home and sketch. Erv found one feather and the other two drifted in.
Haiku for them:
‘Three pretty feathers
Waiting for us to find them
Sweet gifts from above’
The reeds by the lake were dried and when I examined them they had little pockets for creating buoyancy.
The flat piece of palm leaf laying at the top of the page works great for ink and watercolor. I had to try.
The leaf just came along for the ride 😄
It was such a fun day!
I started the day with my silly eggshell that got in with the wrong crowd.
The guys went fishing and I had the whole day to sketch whatever I wanted. This egret was so tame sitting by the guys and waiting for a handout, I had plenty of time to sketch him.
It was cold in the morning so I sat in the car and sketched this scene in ink.
I took a walk around the lake and sketched the buildings nestled up to the foot of the mountains. In ink with my Lamy fountain pen.
Last laugh of the day, this tame egret followed a guy to his car because he was bringing fish home and the egret invited himself to dinner. Lol
Such a fun day!
Day 5 of December and Cactus Monday
‘Even the cactus
Get decorated with lights
A happy season’
Day 4 of December is the second Sunday in Advent. Time to light the second candle.
‘The second Sunday
Time to light two candles
Prepare for advent’
Watercolor on Arches 140# cold press WC paper
Have a great Sunday everyone!
Day 3 of December. Time to get the ornaments out and start hanging them. Haiku:
‘Oh, look at this one!
Such a pretty ornament
Needs a special place’
Wet-in-wet watercolor on Arches 140# cold press in my tiny journal. I love doing wet-in-wet.
December 2, getting ready for Christmas. Now that the lights are hung, the elves are helping with the candy canes. Haiku:
‘Wait, here’s one more
It needs to hang on the left
And don’t eat it first’
Sometimes you have to watch that the elves don’t eat the candy.
Beginning December with all the Christmas lights ready to decorate. Haiku:
‘The cord is laid out
To decorate with bright lites
To start the season’
