Sketching,painting and playing!

Its so hot here,higher then normal temps. I actually went to the beach on sunday! Also had some time to finally get some art time in. Finished the top piece. That one I just had alittle time here and there to add alittle at a time. The second picture is my attempt to paint a tree with acrylics. I have been practicing sketching so much that I wanted to attempt to paint a sketch just to see what would happen. The last sketch is from a class that I'm taking. The class is all about sketching quickly. Just putting down what you see quickly,not alot of details. The figures arent that detailed just quick shapes which is alittle bit more relaxing then worrying about the details like when you do a face. The class is called quick sketching by cathy johnson. I don't have link,never mind I just found it its cathyjohnson.info.com I took quick sketching 1 and 2. Great price too,I think it was 30 dollars. But I do have to tell you its not alot of videos,mostly pdf's that you download.

Have an artful week!

And I sat in my bikini...lol not prety sight...in my back garden. Very strange weather for us here in the UK as it could still snow.
Lovely to see your artworks Buffy, sketching is great. I really like the top, so you!
I hope the family is ok

Hi Buffy, Your painted sketches are wonderful, I think the first one especially needs a frame! Also thank you for the class info.
