Gathered in notebooks

New Sketchbook

I have started the larger journal I made some time ago. I have thought about what I will put in it and this is the first page. I usually take pictures while we are out and then paint when I get home. I always admire those that paint plein air. I rarely do that. Not for any reason other than I don't take the time to do so. I always say to myself I should do this but I am so easily distracted I don't. I am usually caught up in the moment of seeing a butterfly, bird or some wild flower. I do good just to get a picture of the distraction. Do you do a lot of plein air painting?

Twenty minute challenge - The Help

Last weekend we went to see the movie THE HELP. I thought I would try a 20min challenge by drawing an apron. I went to the web site that talks about the help characters and decided to do one of the characters. I tried to do too much in such a short time. I didn't have  a very good picture either.  Every painting is a learning experience. I realize I should think out what I am going to do a little more before attempting a project.
