30 Places, 30 Days, and Beyond...

These are the final sketches from July's 30places30days Sktchy challenge. I enjoyed doing them all; trying media and techniques I'd otherwise not challenge myself to try. I especially loved doing the looser sketches, which usually were done in watercolor.  Details about each of these are on my Instagram feed.

This past couple of weeks, we've had 3-4 fledgling Cooper's Hawks trying our their hunting skills in our old evergreen trees. They have provided much entertainment for us, and for our cats! They seem to be splitting up now, each to their own territory, and one has claimed our yard. In the long run, I'm not sure I'm thrilled about that, as we love our songbirds. 

Now, with the 30 day sketch challenge over, I have changed my studio work table over from a sketching post, to a weaving table, once again. It will stay this way at least until the current tapestry is completed, and I'll be sketching on my lap desk in the sitting room. Wherever I am, or whatever I'll be doing, there will surely be at least one cat keeping me company!
