Watercolor in my sketchbook… (8)

A got an short instant of sunlight through my window right on my stones... it didn't last for long but enough to get started and to get the feel of the scene. I will continue this research with my stones. They are just so inspiring and ideas keep poping up in my head! 
Now, I'll take a break as I have my yoga session in a while, and that might even be related to these!! (he he)

My Moleskine in Portugal… (16)

During a my short stay in Algarve, Portugal, this week end I managed to these few drawings. The beach was amazing and endless, empty of people, and the surrounding landscape was like a colorful painting. It seems like I got obsessed with this beach cabana hear, but I just love wooden beach houses! I regret a little I didn't bring my watercolors, but it would have been complicated to paint anyway, as it requires a bit more involvment than just sketches.
It was lovely to feel spring again, to get some sunshine, to breath the air from the sea, to feel the sand under my feet, to visit the nearby villages, to eat the sweetest clementines ever tasted... 
Even if it was too short it was  lovely and warming for my soul.

I usually never do the first pages in my sketchbooks. But why not keep to this good resolution and enjoy every piece of page of my Moleskine? he he

My Moleskine today… (14)

I bought a new Moleskine today and a few irresistible red hot peppers!
I couldn't wait to start and I've decided to keep to only crayon drawings throughout this one.

Figure drawing sessions... (18)

This is the result of todays drawing session. They were made in 5, 10 and 15 minutes. Short sittings are good exercice to learn to work quick and spontaneously, but lately I really feel like working longer on my drawings to be able to search for a more complete result, in bigger sizes and coulour. I need more time to search for what I want to express. 
(my scans are not so good as the drawings are too big. Sorry fot that.)

Figure watercolor sketches...

Today I did a figure drawing session at "La Grande Chaumière", and old mythical place in Paris were anyone can go to draw if you just pay the session, which is kind of convenient and easy.
These are 10-20 minutes drawings so there might be things that could be improved on these, but I prefer to leave them as they are from that moment.
