So, I've been drawing. I got into coloring books and coloring calendars about a year and a half ago, which has since blossomed into an abiding love for sketching, drawing, coloring, and colored pencils themselves. Every day at work, I shut myself up in my office on my lunch hour, pop in my earbuds, and color my wall calendar or do something original (or original-ish). I may not have any garden pictures for you, but I have drawings of gardens and plants instead:
|a colored pencil interpretation of Cezanne's "Small Forest", 1890|
|A cyclamen I drew from an actual plant...all except for that |
wonky leaf at the bottom, which I tried to draw
from memory. Oops. I just finished this last night.
|Unfinished as of yet; trying to do a version of the picture below, which I took in Seattle along the waterfront. The cobbestones look like zombie flesh.|

didn't have my calendars or sketchbook with me at work. I
LOVE the way the blue flower pot came out.
