Yesterday while sketching my viburnum, I watched the bluebirds flit back and forth from food to nest feeding their young. I patiently waited with camera to try to capture these flashes of blue -- I simply am NOT a fast enough sketcher. I was able to capture two decent photos.
After a grueling, but successful plant sale (yes, it sunned, rained, winded, thundered, and stormed throughout our sale-- yet, we had record turn-outs and did as much business as we did LAST year when we had SUN!), I finished sketching from my photo and watercolored the image. I know I've overworked areas -- but since I'm just up to lesson 4 for watercoloring, I'm not too unhappy with the way this turned out -- especially since I'm operating on 4 hours sleep.
Do explain to me why ANYONE, except in a dire emergency, would be calling anyone else at 1:00 am?? And why a wrong number at that hour will get one's heart beating fast enough for a heart attack and it's so darn hard to go back to sleep!! SIGH!!!!
