En Plein Air

Went to Kafka's with Karla and Seth for the first time in a while. We sat outside and draw whatever interested us. I picked this sunny hill on somebody's property. It looked much better before I painted it, but was salvaged by the addition of the thick pen and the gouache highlights. Also drew some people in Kafka's before we left to go outside and painted them when we got back. 

Teal House

Here's a thing I finished up today.
Took longer than I would've liked, but I'm happy with how it turned out. I went around on a sunny day a few  months ago and took pictures of some houses on my street that caught my eye. Planning to do a few more of these soon.

In other news, I just finished a summer class and have a bit of time off before the next one. I'm heading down to Redmond tomorrow to visit Mike and I'll have some downtime while he's at Microsoft, so I'm hoping to do some more of these if possible.
