Sunday Outing

So Sunday I went to Hughes Water Gardens to sketch.

An attempt to draw a big pond. Drawing water is very hard.

On my way out I saw this nest and baby birds. What a wonderful gift.

I just kept snapping pictures and caught these two.

And the big news: I finished one small moleskine sketchbook. I started on Jan. 4 and finished exactly 6 months later on July 5.

Oh wow! Congratulations :) I've got like maybe 4 pages so far on my Moleskine... but I got at least a quarter done on my other 300 page journal ^^
nice sketches by the way Leigh! When are you starting the next book?

Congratulations on finishing your Moleskine. It is a happy and sad moment to leave the old sketchbook behind when you go out and take a new one. I really like the birds nest sketch !

Nice milestone and what an accomplishment your daily drawings have become. I love the little birds but you know I'm a bird person. Here's to a new book!!!

How cool that the babies were there! We just saw the mom and the nest a couple weeks ago. Congratulations on finishing the moleskine and being on your home stretch.

Wow- I'm impressed with your finishing your moleskin sketchbook and really like how you captured the feel of the water gardens and little birds.
