Oh, poor poor neglected blog....
Whew, it's been a busy week. All good, I will say, but it leads to things getting back-burnered. BUT thank goodness for Illustration Friday to keep me straight with my art play commitment! This week's topic is "dip".
Several things come to mind with the word "dip". Skinny dipping (this is a family blog so...), chips and dip (yummy, but not a particularly appealing sketch subject), roller coasters and other thrill rides (severe acrophobe here), etc.
I decided to keep with the spring theme since we had some lovely weather this week. Of course, the season that follows winter is construction season. Much dipping to do. As a mom of a boy, and then another boy, and then another boy, I learned that knowledge of construction equipment is a MUST.
This sketch is of a lovable excavator. Manly, yes, but I appreciate this particular one for its petiteness. Watercolor and ink in the pocket Moleskine.
