Clarinet Sketch

Rough Sketch of yesterday's photo

clearly I spent most of my time on the clarinet itself- I need to redraw the speaker and the ribbon as well.

This sketch is 6x8 inches; going to do a few more studies on the ribbon and speaker... then draw a 12x16 inch final drawing and then paint it :D

Clarinet Photo

I'm working on a new sketch- and took some photos for it tonight.

I've neglected my poor little clarinet; I must find time to practice again; but for now- I'll draw it :D

Playing at the Park with a camera

I've been a grump the last couple of months and am doing my best to battle past that and get more 'positivity' into my life.  With that depression comes neglecting of things I love- (don't worry I still take care of my family) but this blog has been neglected.  I am determined to make my goal of 365 entries; so I shall.  

In other news- I'm trying to learn how to use my camera again; so I took the kids and my camera to a park and shot some photos.  I barely know how to use the thing now!! (as you can telll; the 'great' pictures there are happy accidents) however I am determined to re-learn how to shoot properly.  

My son is a total ham as you can tell from every picture I took of him- my daughter is also a ham- but still young enough that she doesn't get super self-conscious when the camera is out.  

My favorite one by far is the photo of Avi as she just reaches the bottom of the slide.  I lucked out and captured a great expression- also the time of day (around 6ish) helped as well as where that slide was located.

It was pretty fun- I look forward to improving my photography skillz.
