Sketchbook tree 

Sketchbook July tree, over a few morning tea breaks. There's something pleasantly meditative about following the branches out and transcribing them.

Trees change over the days in subtle ways that are easy to miss, and people come and go. A father whose daughter commented on me said, "I used to draw before I had you," but then went on to talk about art in a nice way to her. I had a few conversations with other people who randomly sat with me.

Every day is new.

Fox for Illustration Friday 

It's been a long time since I've done a picture for Illustration Friday, but the chance to portray my Totem Animal wasn't to be passed up.

This is quick, basic watercolour and acrylic gouache in a sketchbook, so the paper has wrinkled. I'm not sure what I think, but here is "Fox" - hero, villain, beautiful stranger, feral menace, hunter and hunted, creature of the night.
