A Few More Sketchbook Pages

Anybody can
but not everybody does.

I try to draw something everyday. Some days it is much harder. I work a full time job, have to cook and clean, get to and from work. There is little time or energy left to draw, still I force myself to draw something every day.

The first sketch is of a yellow rumped blackbird. This fellow stops by my window nearly every evening just before sunset and settles into the nearby trees. He sits and chirps for a few minutes and then flies off. I don't know where he is coming from or where he is going, but I can't help but wonder, why he stops and sings for such a short time and then flies off. His eyes are bright baby blue. You can't see that very well in the video, but they stand out in the view from my window.

The next sketch I did last night on my way into bed. I had just turned off the light and was going to draw the shade when I looked out and three cats were walking along the top of the garden wall, casting shadows on the neighbors' houses. I quickly grabbed my sketchbook and made this drawing while it was fresh in my mind. It was a very cool to see. I might make a painting of this one.

The last sketch I completed at lunch today. Many of the workers gather at the pavilion to eat and some linger about, gabbing and playing cards afterwards. Most slip off to find a shady tree and take a little siesta nap. I tried capturing the essence of the setting. I might do a few more of these and maybe a painting as well after I return to my studio.
