Sketchy Sunday: More Doggies!

Pff, I keep taking work out to the park thinking I'll get some sun and be productive at the same time, and then I end up sketching cute doggies instead... It must be Summer. (Sooooo many cute doggies in my park, though.) (I hope you all like dogs because I'm rapidly accumulating dog sketches...)

Golden Queen

Whoops, almost forgot, I meant to post this here, too...

BEHOLD. Her Majesty in Solid Gold! Just a little something to mark the fifty page point of The Wayward Queen… What better way to do so than with a solid gold statue of the Queen! Complete with tourists. And Seagulls. And gold filigree on every available surface, because you can never have enough gold filigree.

Tis the season to sketch dogs in the park again... So, here's an assortment of random doggies!

Sketchy Sunday - iPhone Critters

So, this Saturday it was raining, so I thought I'd go to the Brooklyn Museum and check out the Sargent watercolors (excellent exhibit, by the way - check it out if you're in the area! Several rooms of watercolors that make you say "how does he DO that!?") Anyway, afterwards it had stopped raining, and was rather balmy out, so I thought I'd walk through the park. Since it was a museum day, I had no sketching gear with me. So OF COURSE all the critters were out in full force. There was a night heron posing and catching fish right under a footbridge, and a raccoon crossed the sidewalk right in front of me and then paused halfway up a tree to stare - AND ME WITH NO SKETCHBOOK, ARGH!!

So I attempted to sketch on my phone. These are the results. I have to say phone-sketching is one of the most painfully slow and awkward mediums I have ever attempted, so I don't think this will become a regular thing. But hey, whatever works.

(I really need to find a tiny sketchbook to keep in my purse for these occasions, sheesh.)
