MY KOURSE AT SKETCHBOOK SKOOL

My kourse in the new semester of Sketchbook Skool is launching tomorrow! There will be crosshatching and iPad sketching -- so here is a mix of both: crosshatching on the iPad. Which is really not ideal by the way. It has to do with the way the stylus makes strokes, and the speed at which you can go. But it's still pretty darn fun. 
Here is one of the Q & Art we did in anticipation for the kourse: 

BABY YOU CAN DRIVE MY CAR

There is a long list of chores I should have done instead of sitting on the couch with my daughter to doodle cars. Montblanc fountain pen in sketchbook.

STRETCHING


Crosshatching, sketching on the iPad and not necessarily finishing: this seems to be my gig. My kourse at Sketchbook Skool encompasses all three. See you soon! 


WAITING FOR THE VOLVO

My Volvo, being the old lady that she is, needed a new brake line. The mechanic told me he could do it right on the spot, so I got out the iPad and drew what was across the street on Schooleys Mountain Road.

CLOTHES DRYING OUTSIDE KIND OF WARM

Today was the first day of sketching outside comfortably (i.e. without gloves or raindrops on the sketchbook) so I sat under our pergola and drew a portion of our house and garage.
I followed one of Miguel Herranz's tips (I won't spoil it, but one of his incredible demos at Sketchbook Skool was definitely a stretching experience for me) and tried to emulate his strokes.

COFFEE TABLE RUNDOWN

I didn't make time to draw today. I could have, but instead I undertook the building of an Ikea dresser that had been sitting in my foyer for weeks months. 
So, right before going to bed, I decided for a quick rundown of the living room coffee table: the usual mess, except this time I have acquired grown-up Legos.
