Met my good friend Andy for sketching at the NYMT. The place was amazing. So many things to sketch and a majority of them indoors. So excited for another winter venue. So much so that I am now a member :)
But since it was such a beautiful day we sketched outside. There's still enough for at least 3 trips of outdoor sketching.
In early April we went to the Bahamas for my best friends wedding.
It was a great trip in so many ways. We got to see two wonderful people get married, spend 5 days in the sun and near water that i have never seen so blue/ green before. (It was like being dropped in a calendar) Spend almost a week hanging out with my best friend who lives 6 hours away, eat as much as we wanted, take a much needed break from the freezing cold weather back home AND i had a plethora of time to sketch. The topping was that i got to share all of that with my DW.
the left side of the spread below are sketches from Goodfellow Farms on Nassau. Travel delays and re-routeing left us on the island with no hotel or car. With luck and the generosity of a new acquaintance we had a wonderful day/ evening. We are of so very grateful to the Goodfellow Family. If your ever on the island of Nassau check out their Cafe and country store.
I realized that while I am still practicing drawn big people I have become comfortable enough to sketch some of my friends and even sharing the results. It feels so good not to try and sneak my sketches in witihout being noticed.
