More sketchbooking

This week I went to the Bean again. I wanted to try drawing from life by first blocking the silhouette in marker, then using a white pencil to define form.

I liked the way these turned out, but I cheated by putting outlines in after I was done. And I also went on an otter binge, because I've ever seen their stuffed otter before.

Here I did it the way I wanted. And you see, Laura, I do failtastic drawings all the time. I just don't usually put them on my blog. (but as these actually show what I was trying to do here... I have no choice)

And Saturday evening I sketched mountains in the twilight drizzle - same method, basically. I love how the air clears out when it rains.
