San Diego SketchCrawlers

Check out the VIDEO

I have a sketch blog called " Dancing Strokes " where I usually post my sketches. In the side bar.
But this time I also went to a get together with the weekly group to Balboa park , Alcazar Gardens here in San Diego.
Well one of the our sketchers is Lydia Velarde she is part of the Urban Sketchers as a correspondents but her talent doesn't just lie there. She made this fabulous little video posted on U-Tube of us, drawing, including the sites we were enjoying.
All to great music, titles and credits.

Here's an other Mommy & Me drawing for the project I 'm working on but in the end I am not sure we will choose any of these for the final one.
They're good exercises though.

5 x 5 Ball Point Pen

This is one of the pictures James Parker posted on his website Windows to the Words Art. It is a photo submitted by Maggie Mayer, I believe his name is Laid Back. Everyone can join and paint one or more of the pictures and they will be displayed there.
The deadline is completely past ( July) but I saw this beautiful lab done by a few artist I know and I am partial to a beautiful face like that.
So here is my version. I enjoyed drawing him.

8 x 10 Acrylic

Here is the latest one for the Different strokes From Different Folks challenge. I started today and due today ! Ewff.......
I tried being a bit more loose and did not pre-draw this one on purpose but just started painting. This one was a little bit of a struggle but kept telling myself it's the feeling I want to get not the accuracy. It seems I was drawn to the cool one side and warm the other.
All are very good go check them out.
I wonder what's next.......... :D

" Love is Kind "

18 x 24 Pastel

I've been a bit busy on a project which I am not done with and I have neglected my blog, sorry.
So here is a piece I did a while back for my nephew Eric and his lovely wife Jen's wedding.
I hope every one is having a fabulous summer.
Stay cool, enjoy the sunsets, give compliments to complete strangers, smile even if it hurts, hold someone hands and tell them thank you for being there.
Blessings to all.
