Van Gogh master study

As an experiment with the stick in ink technique in my art methods class, we did a quick master study of Van Gogh’s cicadas. Mine is below.

I really enjoyed it.

DrawnTown block party

Because of grad school classes on Tuesday nights, we hadn’t been to a DrawnTown since 2009! Since my classes finished up for the summer in July, we could attend a special block party event where DrawnTown participants were invited to come and do their DrawnTowny thing. So we went and enjoyed some music for a while. Ian also enjoyed some music, but mostly enjoyed Daddy’s hair. View the rest of the set here.

DrawnTown six

My pieces from tonight’s DrawnTown, hosted by Graphic Content. I’ve attended all but one, and as usual, the gathering was wonderful. The location, Rug and Relic, had lots of room and interesting things to draw. A great locale choice.

Hanging fixture

A hanging light fixture. Thought the angle might be interesting, and then five minutes in, decided it wasn’t too fun for my neck. So, I wish I could have spent more time on it.
