Moleskine Sketches

I had put my Moleskine sketchbook aside for some time. Today I took it out and decided to get back to filling it.

The neighbor is having a flowerbed built around his tree, and I decided to sketch it while it is in the prep stage and again when finished with flowers. Right now there are wooden forms up where they have poured a short cement wall to hold the dirt. As I sat outside, I decided to journal a bit about our small apple tree.

As today is the Worldwide Sketchcrawl, I will be continuing with the Moleskine. I really like these books. I have the one with thicker paper. It takes some water pretty good. At least as much as I put on with my colored pencils and waterbrush.

I have a lunch date with a former coworker/good friend. I shall do some sketching before that, and hopefully will have time to sketch my meal before devouring it. Then I will fill a little more time driving around for a few more sketches.

Tomorrow evening The Guild House is having their auction for charity. Two of my pieces have already been sold. But there are still 2 graphite pieces that will be in the auction. The artists have been invited to the auction for wine and nibbles. I look forward to my first auction, but a little intimidated by having my work being auctioned in front of me.

Happy Worldwide Sketchcrawl Day, Jeanne! Michelle and I will be sketching today too, but I'm not sure where we're heading. It should be just warm enough to sketch outdoors.
