Sketching at the Newport Aquarium

Poor 80 year old Bravo seemed a little overwhelmed as the exhibit got busier and busier and hid in the corner for a while. He eventually moved into a better sketching pose.

Some sketches from Friday’s Newport Aquarium visit with Amy, Linda and Julie including the new turtle exhibit featuring Bravo the Galapagos turtle.

Here is a Vine video:
Love these crabs!

Easing Very, Very Slowly into Spring

Sketching before seeing Wicked
Although spring is arriving in a sluggish fashion, it has been nice enough to get out here an there. Here are a couple outings.The church next to Washington Park has the wrong date. My desire to move things along was expressed by writing a 4 instead of a 3 on the date. It felt like April that day.

March 14th, not so much... It was WINDY with less sun than I would like when it is in the 50s.

Birthday Card 2014

The rare Angleroar Sea Dragon… I drew it for my nephew’s (belated) birthday card. I usually draw a dragon, but since he was just snorkeling on vacation, I went under the sea.

Sketch Outing at Newport Aquarium

I love the wobbegong!

I went with Amy, Vanessa and Monica for an afternoon of sketching at Newport Aquarium.

Checkout their AMAZING sketches and photos here and here.

They are in the middle of a reconstruction so I am looking forward to their next phase. I love the shark rays. They two are named after my and Vanessa's cats (Spike and Sunshine).

The penguins are always adorable!
A very sociable turtle...
Japanese crabs!

Wishing for Spring

I did this sketch a couple days ago. It looks like it will have the opposite effect of bringing on spring weather...
