new things

I've been working on some new items. This is what my desk currently looks like:

I have just discovered the close up feature on my camera! 
In my defense...I have always used the zoom...but now I have found the setting that allows you to play with the focus. I love it!
I can't wait to redo my Etsy photos!

Random sketching

from the past few days. I was playing with some watercolors in a moleskine...
very thin pages...I kind of like the look.

Peep drawing

My study break....not theirs.
My attempt to secretly draw the people at the table in front of me in Barnes & Noble without them noticing. Good incentive to draw quickly.

Several months ago I found this gold mine of a  website called Posemaniacs.

It is for artists, etc to practice drawing people. I am always trying to improve my people drawing skills because some of my favorite sketches are those with people in them...done quickly and loosely. I even started a sketchbook just for this purpose. Practice makes perfect, right?

I'm also testing out the setting on my scanner because it doesn't ever accurately reflect the colors...

crisp air...
bubbling creativity
to inspire.
Fall is here! I love the season changes...and I have a crush on fall.
This fall I purpose to:
1. sketch more
2. take more pictures of the changing leaves
3. take more walks in the crisp air 
4. cook more stews

What do you purpose to do more of this season?
