So, I am attending a State and Local Taxation Conference in Washington DC at Georgetown Law. This conference coincides with the DC Supershow which I will be attending on Saturday. Sunday is reserved for sightseeing, at the least I want to get to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to honor my Dad who was killed there 47 years ago.  It has been almost 20 years since my last visit to The Wall.

Anyway, today's conference speakers provided a lot of models for sketching.

This weeks instructor is Prashant Miranda and our first homework assignment was to go outside and do a watercolor of the sky.  The skies here have been a little boring lately, typical midsummer washed out blue, so I chose a photo that I took of a spectacular sunset that I took in the fall of 2006.

I signed up for Sketchbook Skool and the first day of klass was July 4.

Our first assignment was to draw an object which has some meaning to you, while I was deciding on an object I did this sketch of Kota.


This was done in a Strathmore Hardbound Journal with 80 lb toned gray paper. This will be my journal of choice for the course, at least for the moment.


I'm not as pleased with the results of this sketch, but that's the point of Skool.

Some time ago a read about the book One Watercolor a Day by Veronica Lawlor on Elaine Magliacane's website. Intrigued, I looked the book up and decided it would be a good addition to my art venture.

You can see Elaine's post about the book here. I don't have time, right know, to do one exercise a day, but I'm trying to work them in when I have time.
