I always hate putting the tree up, because I usually put those loose snowflakes on it. So, when I pull it out, I get flakes everywhere.

There's a slight sheen from where I used the flash, but the colors are very close. It's monochromatic, working from yellow ochre.

Finally did something with the sketch I did at Playhouse square last weekend during the sketchcrawl. First of all, I actually had forgotten a sketchbook, and the only thing I could find was blank letter writing paper at CVS.
So, I redrew it in my sketchbook, and then used the photo I took as a color reference to do the watercoloring.
Now, I have to tend to the 55 gallon fish tank for the weekly water change. One of the fish is acting peculiar this morning. It's "Piggy," which is an orange platy with black spots on her snout (thus the name, "Piggy"). I'd move her to the 30 gallon tank, but I have a betta in there, and I hear bettas will tear into any reddish fish.

My first sketch was with a Santa devouring cookies. I elaborated on it to have him all wide-eyed and crazed over a plate of sweets, and even did one with his belt buckle undone. But, this ones seemed more like a poster and less like a cartoon.

I think I made his one eye too big,b ut I think you can look at this and kind of tell it's him, which I guess is an accomplishment.
The article had this great quote, and I wanted to keep it to look back on. I worry an awful lot, and I have t say, after I did this sketch this morning, I launched into a huge fit of worrying that started to make me physically ill. I've moved past it, but I'll be home all day for these worries to nag at me.
I'll probably be posting what I did last night in class soon. We were supposed to pick a theme, and then do our design based on a combination of words that describe that theme. I kind of got an early idea which may work. I picked Christmas, but the teacher is forever trying to stop me from doing "cute" things. So, I had to make some kind of statement about what I was going to draw. I'll post it later and you guys can comment or send an email like usual.

Told you that I would be going up to the lake to draw.
I have to admit, it was deceptively pretty out. So, I didn't grab gloves or a heavy coat. When I got up there, all of the fishermen were wearing hats and winter coats. At first, it was very pleasant, but then I got cold very quickly. I did a quick sketch and snapped a photo to do the watercolor when I would get home. Next time, I'll be more prepared for the cold. I'd just gotten fingerless gloves when I was in Ligonier,but hadn't even thought to bring them. It took a while for my hands to warm up in the car on the way home.
It is very pretty up there, though. I will definitely go up again sometime soon to draw and paint.

While I was drawing this one, I ran out of things that interestedme in the bottom left corner, and rew that really crickety chair. My favorite square is the microphone stands. It was hard to see them through the other stuff going on, and it was pretty dark in that corner, so if you are a mic expert, and they are not acurate drawings, don't blame me.
I also like the no smoking sign.
I may color this with watercolor, but I'm still smarting from watercoloring the other drawing from the Grog Shop, where I drew another lady's table. I really messed it up with the watercolor.
Tomorrow, if it's not too cold, I might go up to the lake and draw boats. Though, I did notice that most of them are covered for the winter already.
We'll see. Maybe the zoo if it's not too cold, then?
I'm going somewhere, one way or the other.

When I originally went to sign up for school and see if my old credits would transfer, I told the woman on the phone that my college credits were very old, and I wasn't sure if they'd transfer. She asked when I went, and I told her, and she was like, "Oh, that's not old. I thought you'd meant it was from the 1940s or something."

I did make it to Ligonier yesterday, and after my exam on Monday night, I'll draw up this great gallery I had seen. I took a picture with people in front of it on purpose, but after I took the picture, a lady apologized for getting into the shot. Even though, I wanted them to be in it.

Then, I came home an played with an old set of watercolors to tone the paper.
