I've been trying to sketch more. Some days it is easy. Other days the busy-ness of life gets in the way. Since I really want to be painting more, I need to find the path back to making it a priority. Thomas is an obliging model as he loves to sit near (on!) me!
I had just a few minutes to capture a scene on this day and the bowl of vegetables on the kitchen counter were well suited.
Another morning, I was captivated by the light coming in my bedroom window. But once the sketch was completed, I realized I had focused so much on the details of the scene that I missed the light completely!
Yesterday, I had to drive into Denver to complete some of the pre-hire paperwork for my job. On the way home, I took back roads and just enjoyed the landscape. The snow is quickly melting. Just a few miles from home I captured this lovely vista of the Front Range. Hopefully soon, my oil painting skills will be back to where I want them and I can start painting Plein Air again. I've missed it so!
