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.
And let me not forget but it also STAR's Grace (my chocolate lab)
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.
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.
