The Last Weekend of Summer
Our weather wasn’t very summer-like around here over the Labor Day weekend, so we were kinda lazy, and enjoyed a quiet weekend.
I practiced a few drawings for my drawing fundamentals class. We are learning the very basics, how to draw square blocks, rectangles, cylinders and triangles – all as accurately as possible (and draw them as if they were made of glass so you can see through them), so no masterpieces here! I am just happy to be learning how to see and draw proportions, perspective, parallels, angles, and spheres.
I have also been practicing drawing real things in my personal sketchbook, equally as challenging. This one in particular was good inspiration to practice drawing a cylinder with a sphere, which we covered in class last week.
I did a little sewing and knitting too, which I’ll share in a later post.
We made it to the Taste of Madison, where we sampled some food, tried a beer (or two), and saw some live music, which included good people-watching, always a fun past-time.
I’m off to check on that pot roast we’re having for dinner. At least it’s great weather for cooking with the slow cooker. Even though I’m not working now, these three-day weekends sure make me happy, especially having Monday off. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend too!
