Spring Break Sketchbook Action

It's spring break here in College Town, Oregon. Spring break has its good points: no traffic, no wait for a table in any restaurant anywhere at any time of day, no what-not-to-wear parade of tiny shorts and Uggs everywhere you look....but the bad points are more onerous. No preschool, no Art Center figure painting, and no babysitters, since they're all off somewhere drinking on a houseboat. Or whatever it is they do.

I did manage to find a place to get my fix last night - Emerald Art Center in Springfield. Since it's basically a drawing session, the poses are shorter, but as long as they let me in with my paints, I can deal! The below was done in about an hour, after some sketchbook action - which I share with you only because I trust you deeply. I'm just not a draw-er these days. Rusty doesn't begin to describe it.

 A 5 minute sketch, in pencil:
And this morning, a quick pencil sketch of my precious studio assistant, Ellie. She's doing some art-book research for me. Or maybe just looking at the pictures.

What do you mean? Your sketches are very lovely! I love how you've done the light and how you have done the hatching. Look free and fun! I love that.
