Kes on the Bleachers: pen on paper. Kes likes to play with an old dog ball he found at our park baseball diamond, rolling it along the short bleachers around the outside. Hours of entertainment...
Tree and House: pen and paper. Sitting in the park while Kes plays in a tiny house, looking across the street. The trees here are very old silver maples, and are much like the ones that line the street where I grew up.
Tulip Tree Flower: pen, marker on paper. So the tulip tree flowers are starting to come out! They are a subtle, strange and lovely sort of flower, and worth seeking out. Incidentally, I took extreme liberties with the colour of the leaves and flower; they are all light, warm green, creamy inside the flower and with a flash of yellow and orange at the base of the petals. This flash of colour is often the only way to pick the flower out amongst the leaves. My markers and scanner were rather uncooperative today.
Crowded Hallway: ballpoint pen on paper. So I asked my friend Mathieu to give me a topic to draw for the day, and he decided on a narrow corridor filled with boxes and furniture, cabinets, loose paper, etc.. Tall and a little claustrophobic I believe. The only problem is that I was supposed to draw it from life, and not just think it up. So consider this #1 of 2 Mathieu, until I can find a suitable crowded and narrow hallway to sketch...
Two Pug-like Dogs: pen on paper. I like when their tongues hang out and they don't even know. Also, their eyes look in two different directions. They must be fierce hunters.
