May 26, 2015

I haven't been outdoors sketching due to too many things to do and to my allergies.  The pollen this Spring has been awful.

Since classes ended, I'm glad to be back sketching.  This is Shep.

Every Day in May Sketching Challenge

As some of you may know there has been a worldwide sketching project every May for the last several years called Every Day in May.  There is a Flicker Group by that name that you can join and post your work and see others work.  I've never done it before but was able to figure out how to do the Flicker thing and so I'm posting a sketch a day.  You can read more about it on the art blog "Making a Mark" and the Flicker address is in the blog post from May 1st along with other info about it.  Below is the list of things to sketch each day and they are to be sketched from life.  This is a just for fun thing and it is.  It also makes me take time to do a sketch every day and that is always a good thing.  Hope you're all having a great spring and lots of sketching time.
