BLOG - some sketchbook | some WIP | some random stuff
A trip to Nashville in December, included golf, music, hockey, historic architecture, neon lights, great weather, lots of people… maybe too many people for me! Played a round of golf at the Hermitage Golf Course, it took a while to get accustomed to the colours. The grass on the fairway was dormant, so yellow ochre or brown. The greens were the only green on the course.
Finally got back to a figure drawing session at TAP Centre for Creativity. These sessions are open to all, there is no instructor, just show up with $10 and your tools and draw for three hours. Great way to spend an afternoon.
My golf sketches were originally scattered in different sketchbooks. In 2016, I said "I will sketch every golf hole I play". Some rounds are slow... lots of time for sketching plein air and some rounds are fast... no time for sketching, so sketched later from reference photos. The colour is always added later.
My dog Buddy waits so patiently for me to take him for a walk. But once he thinks it's time (and it's like he can read my mind) ... he gets so excited! We all should enjoy a walk as much as he does. This morning, we saw a mother deer and fawn, a great blue heron and the two osprey in their nest at Labatt's Ball Park.
