Après-ski

There is no time for sketching during ski vacation - I was trying to exploit the snow as much as I could. I just couldn't resist not to sketch this beautiful view from my room.

drink & draw

drink&draw - this name was born during one of the USk symposiums, I think. We called "drink&draw" all these perfect evenings after the day full of sketching when we went out to drink, chat, and again... sketch together. Perfect combination!
My husband isn't a sketcher, so he needs to be patient when we go out together and I don't want to miss the opportunity to drink&draw a bit :)

Collaborative sketching at Rabin Square

We opened our last sketchcrawl by sketching together on the long roll of paper - the idea that I wanted to try long time ago and finally we did it! It was really fun to loosen up and to interact together, it was refreshing to sketch on a big format and... in public :)

After sketching together (and chatting with my fellows, of course) I did these two sketches. It wasn't easy to transfer the great atmosphere that was that Friday morning at the Rabin Square - parents with children, carriers with elderly persons, couples, bicycle riders - everything was moving, changing, interacting...

 At the end I couldn't resist not to sketch Nathan sketching :)

It was really fun sketchcrawl, with a lot of positive energies!

People at the post office

You can never know how much happens at a post office :) Pity I was needed to wait only 10 numbers until my turn has arrived.

His Majesty Graphite Pensil

I love to try different techniques, play around mixing professional tools and cheep children's art supply. I feel that that it prevents my hands from working automatically and force my eyes to see better. When I want to rest, I come back to the basic - old good graphite pencil. It can express a lot and I never get bored of it!

Hot Jazz for kids

Finally we had a bit rainy Saturday, which we spent with our youngest daughter at Jazz concert for children.

It was a great show, for me music and sketching is always a perfect formula!
