Seattle Asian Art Museum

I went to Seattle Asian Art Museum again today and sketched the interior spaces of the museum. Trying to practice pencil sketching.

Winter sketches from Seattle

Sketches from the last two days.   I am taking some time to sketch the snow.  Interesting experience in painting in the negative spaces.  The second sketch I used a mask to keep the areas white above the shrubs.  It is really hard to not want to paint.

Images From the Seattle Asian Art Museum

Today we had our monthly sketchcrawl, and despite the weather 20 people showed up. Sketching at the Seattle Asian Art Museum was fun but we were restricted to sketching with graphite. It has been a while since I have sketched with graphite so my work is a bit rough. I will have to practice that more. Here are my sketches from today and a watercolor sketch of my backyard. A bit snowy today.

One last sketch before packing up Christmas!

Here is one last sketch of a Christmas ornament we bought for our son.  This ornament was also designed and made by Lynette Johnson for her Art sale Fundraiser.
