Time tonight to draw a bit.

As I said in my last post, we went to NH today to check in with the kids and their parents and actually all had a great time together. The kids needed distraction and happily showed us how to play "Guitar Hero" on their X box. I had so much fun with that game, its the first game that I actually liked. Usually they make me so nervous, but this one had me laughing out loud. Teenager beat his uncle in darts, pool and ping pong - and I beat Uncle in Guitar Hero. Uncle is now making dinner. Poor Uncle!

Had a bit of time to draw tonight, still learning with the colored pencils. I can travel with those, and only need a sharpener and eraser to keep going. The one below this is supposed to be one of those black and white chickens...done with purple and brown. If you enlarge it you can see that it looks like he has a little hat on.

The second one is another landscape copied from a photograph. I think it would have been better with out the tree, but there you go. Live and learn.

Nice drawings with the colored pencils Mim. Glad you got to be with the kids and gave them some time to let loose and be kids.
Are you back home already?

Love the colors in the bottom shot.
