Cold Feet

I sat with my feet in the hot water of the tub last night and sketched my surroundings and my phone, which I snap all these photos with. It was a pleasant mix hot water and the slightly odd lyrics of Mother Mother.

I sat accompanying a friend of mine in the woodshop and sketched the busy interior. It was a pleasant mid spring afternoon for me. I like the smell of sawdust (although its an irritant). I hope to have more afternoons in this fashion.

Me Learn Painter

I'm finding Corel Painter to be more and more of a useful program for not only working on scan images but also for doing sketches for paintings. I really appreciate how much easier the palette is to work with in this program but there are some functions from photoshop that would be invaluable.

No reference, just fiddling.

Toronto Beach

I went into the big city for a job last week and on my way back I was sitting on the streetcar and when I moved my feet I noticed it was unusually gritty. Looking down I found, to my pleasant surprise, someone had desired a white, and sparkling sandy beach aboard the car. It was strange but a nice ode to the summer.
