Men enjoying technology

A couple recent sketches I've done -- one is of a man playing Solitaire on his iPad on a flight to Minneapolis over Memorial Day weekend. I was in awe of how large his fingers were!

The other is of two young guys on their laptops at Pound coffee shop on Capitol Hill, done earlier this afternoon. I felt like I captured the slouch of the closer guy really well, more so than the other guy -- whose proportions are a bit off (my fault, not his!)

home in the garden

Bressingham blue hosta blooms first in the garden with white flowers and blue leaves. 
brand new pot of zinnias caught my eye... now I have to plant them.

Everlasting pea vine is a roadside favorite new to our garden

Kindly Light day lilies are one of my favorites

Sâuçá Restaurant

Sauca Restaurant
The brilliant Sâuçá fleet of food trucks recently opened a brick and mortar restaurant just around the corner from my apartment. And not only is it as delicious as the trucks, with an even bigger menu, but I can now mosey my way over there anytime I like. They took over a fantastic building that has a great retro design to it, with a beautiful overhang that covers the patio, making it a fun subject to draw.

P.S. Get the Fish Taco or Butter chicken with a side of Yucca fries. And ask for a few of their many tasty sauces to dip it all in.

DC Sketchers @ Meridian Hill Park

DC Sketchers explored foreshortening and perspective at Meridian Hill Park - a National Historic Landmark maintained by the National Park Service. Designed in the early 20th century, modeled on classical European urban parks, the park is made for perceptive drawing with lots of rewarding vistas, featuring statues and cascading fountains. Check out the original and revised plans.
