I spent the evening at The Canvas, an art bar in NW Portland, with my sketching buddies yesterday. The bar provides a clothed model for about 2 and a half hours, in several timed poses. We had a great time sketching, sipping wine, and snacking. This is the best of my timed sketches--as for the rest--let's just say that I need practice.
This blog is about my journey as a botanical artist--what I am learning, what inspires me and what I am currently drawing or painting. I just completed the Society of Botanical Artists Distance Course in an effort to hone my drawing and painting skills to better express my wonder and gratitude for the beauty of the creation around me in the Pacific Northwest (USA).
