    Did this at last nights life drawing session. Most of these are gesture drawings, trying to capture the curves and the flow of the lines.

    Often, obviously, at these drawing sessions I get a bit whimsical, the effort one puts forth can get intense and sketching some almost cartoon images helps keep things loose. Did this at last nights life drawing session. Alaska willow charcoal.

  • Selfie, Alaskan style

    OK, I freely post both good and bad pictures here but I very seldom post ugly ones (i.e.: pictures of myself) but in this case I'll make an exception. I took this selfie right after plowing snow and by golly, I like it. -grin-

    We got about 5 inches (about 13 cm.).
