Been working on many projects in the studio, but also taking some time to do a bit of on-location drawing and painting with some fellow DIS members. This study is of a garden off an alley in my neighborhood. The place has always fascinated me. I finished this at around 12:30 pm. It is 5" x 7".
Yeah it's November in Denver and there's still green grass and living plants. That's creepy.
I took this photo around 10:00 am, before I began the pen drawing which I then filled in with watercolor. Then we got hungry and left for lunch.
Here are a couple more, done a few weeks earlier. Both studies are approx. 3" x 4".
An update from the last two posts: I'm still completely off of Facebook (outside of checking on events) and
only occasionally looking at Instagram.
What I've noticed in 20 days since the beginning of An Experiment :
1. Still feeling better mentally; much lighter and more content.
2. I'm now sleeping through the night, every night.
(Prior to bailing on social media I'd gotten used to waking around two or three am and not being able to fall back asleep for an hour or so. Previously, I seldom looked at screens late in the evening and never checked my phone during the night, so the new sleep habits have nothing to do with that. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but I don't think so.)
3. I'm reading a ton, compared to the last 6 months. That's no coincidence.
4. Still really don't want to jump back onto social media--it sounds less and less inviting.
I must be incredibly sensitive to Facebook. Oh well.
And that's about it--thanks for the visit!
