Sketching when traveling is easy. Everything is new and exciting, and you want to sketch it. Coming back home and keeping up the practice takes work.
I revert to my go-to subjects, and while they are pretty critical of the results, (That might be why I’m so thick-skinned about drawing in public: “Mama, really, those lips?” and ” You really can’t draw me , can you?” are often-heard remarks) my kids are still okay with being sketched. Note my sand-filled palette. I really made a big mess when I dropped it at the beach.
We continued the little drawings and chatting at Almaden Lake Park, where the Canada Geese are permanent residents, and over coffee at our local coffeeshop.
Brush pen people drawing while chatting. I just love the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen. Such a handy and versatile tool.
