Second Time Around - Day 31

Another sketch of my little jade plant.  I'm falling behind again.  I had planned to take my sketchbook with me to the pool today, but I forgot.  I'm going to need a few "catch-up days".  I did a much better job of sticking to a sketch every day the last time.

Second Time Around - Day 28*

I took a little hike at the local wildlife center, and did this sketch in "the garden".  No flowers, just lots of ferns.

* This sketch was posted in the correct order, but Blogger must have eaten it, necessitating my posting it again.

Second Time Around - Day 30

Still too embarrassed to sketch people at the pool, so I sketched my own feet before I swam my laps this time.

Second Time Around - Day 29

I saw a sign at the nursery that said they had local tomatoes and peaches, so I stopped to get some, and bought a little jade plant.  I love jade plants, and they are supposed to be hardy, but I've killed a few in my time, so I hope this one hangs around for a while.  I may do a couple of little paintings of it.

Second Time Around - Day 27

I usually work in a 9 x 12 Flexi-Sketch, but today I took a small 4 x 6 sketchbook with me to the town pool, and I sketched the lifeguard before doing my laps.

Second Time Around - Days 25 and 26

These two were done from photos.

Second Time Around - Day 23 and 24

Well, these two caught me up - temporarily.  The canna and the bunny/wagon lawn statue were found in my next door neighbor's front yard.  I've been wanting to sketch or paint the canna for a long time, and I recently saw some artwork that I liked of statues, so I thought I would try my hand at the bunny.  After these two, I got distracted by other things and fell behind again.  The next few will be "catch-ups".
