drawing class: sketches in the park

Over the weekend I slapped on a beret and headed outside to sketch.  OK, no beret, but doesn't it seem like that's something one should wear when sketching in a park?


Here's a picture of the park grandstand.


And here's my sketch.


A picture of a train car in the park.


And my sketch.

After two sketches my bottom was getting a little soggy as the wet grass was seeping through my blanket.  There is a fabulous train depot in the park that I would love to sketch as well on another day.

Our latest lesson in class was on perspective.  I'm really looking forward to learning shading.  The class is a lot of fun, but two four hour long classes a week really makes me tired!  Going to school in the evening was so much easier when I was younger!

Ooh - shading! I think that's one of the most important parts!
