Another Workshop at the Penticton Art Gallery

A great  group came out for my Sketchbook Journaling Workshop at the Penticton Art Gallery yesterday.  This time I had everyone draw their own feet.  It worked out really well - they all did wonderful drawings, and then when we hit the Japanese Garden, they had the concepts clear and were able to dive in without hesitation and got some great results.  Fun!

I was working at Kettle Ridge earlier in the day and did this little sketch in one of my new sketchbooks as well.   I thought that using a crayon as a resist would give me the burst of yellow that I was seeing in the weeds.  Not so.  Needs a little work to figure out how best to show that profusion.  It's beautiful in real life.

Looks like a fabulous workshop. I like your shoes :D

The kettle ridge sketch looks very good. I like the lightness of colour in the front compared to the more somber background.
