Detroit Zoo Sketches


I took my sketch book to The Detroit Zoo recently and I did some open air sketching. My birds turned out the best, except for the penguin, who I sketched at the end of the day when I was really tired, so he truly suffered for it. He was a lot cuter in person.

I've been experimenting more with shading with ink, trying to make my drawings look less flat.

More Salt Shakers


I've still been sketching salt shakers at restaurants. I can't believe how many different kinds that restaurants use.

Autumn Leaves


With my sketchbook, I went into my backyard and drew some of the leaves. A squirrel was barking at me from a tree for a while. I don't think he approved.

Baby Pumpkin


I bought this little pumpkin for my critters over the Halloween season. I drew it in pencil, and I've been working on my shading more.

Mule or Donkey?



Recently, I went to Jenny's Dexter Market for cider and donuts, and one of the farm animals came right over to me and wanted to be petted. I'm not sure if it was a mule or a donkey, but it was cute!

Bird House


Last spring, I drew this little bird building her nest in a bird house, but I forgot to post it.
