my young apprentice

luke painting

I forgot about this sketch, I did in July, of my three year old son Luke painting with his winsor and newton paints in his own sketchbook. He likes to draw. The other morning, he woke me up early putting a pack of crayons and some paper on my bed. He drew a shape, and then told me to trace over it with a red crayon. He wasn’t impressed with the results though. “No no, daddy,”¬† he said, “triangles have five sides!”

davis amtrak station

Attempted Davis Amtrak station again, from a different angle this time. ¬†Went downtown on Sunday morning to do some sketching, and it rained! Not much, spitting really, but it was difficult to sit and draw in the rain. Sure I’ve done it before, but under shelter, not when the drops are getting on the page. So I gave up and did most of this back at home.
