I think I am setting a new record. How close can I get to midnight to post before it is “Tuesday” according to the clock? I’ve been pretty busy the last week or so–trying to get well…again…and also trying to do a little art. I had to go out of town most of the day Saturday and that consumed a great deal of the time that usually have to create. My Saturday activities were pretty consuming and Sunday I decided that it would be in my best interest to stay home and get some rest. Sometimes too much is just too much.
It was such a nice day here Sunday. I took my Moleskine 6″x9″ watercolor journal and my Micron black 005 pen and went and sat on my back porch stairs and created a sketch of what I saw in my backyard. I love my back yard. It is one of my favorite “happy places” in my life. It was so beautiful that I wanted to sketch and paint it. So today, for My Journal Monday, I present you my personal rendering of my backyard as I see it. I hope you enjoy going there with me as well. 🙂
No. It is certainly not perfect but I’m pretty pleased with it. My proportions of some of the objects and the depth perception is definitely off but I think I would still want to go there. I have much room for improvement in the landscape arena. I’m sure I will attempt to sketch this scene again some day.
