I have been practicing some techniques in drawing to pass on to my students. One is realism in graphite, a cactus in pre-bloom. Another is a colored pencil rendering of a firey sunrise view from my home using colored pencil, graphite and a heated surface while working in the colored pencil (makes for interesting blending of colors. I am not sure the photo does it justice. The other is an ink drawing with colored pencil for accents. This my husband calls my high school days style. I call it my Zentangle. Better yet, I just call it Keeper since it is our cat Keeper. Below Keeper is another Zentangle I call Fuzzy or grumpy bird. Fuzzy is a Say’s Phoebe that hatched in our back yard. I took a photo of him in his youth, thus the fuzzy head. He was very cute and a slow flight learner so he stuck around for awhile. He was fun to watch and very tame.
Finally got to use the Intova Sport HD II. Great little camera with amazing results.
One day was out of the water and fishing on a boat. Went out at least 10+ miles from shore. Not sure about the distance except to say we got out of site of any land. No keepers this trip. It was all catch and release and use on my trusty Nikon Point and shoot.
