summery weather here in los angeles this weekend. i went for a walk late this morning, motoring along under camelia blossoms & palm trees. sunbeams followed me along the path. a hawk soared overhead.
stopped outside this frank lloyd wright and stared long and hard through the gate.
came home & tended the garden a bit. found these velvety scarlet leaves hidden among the rambling scented geranium. i had no idea they turned red at this time of year!
finished my sketchbook and pulled down a new one from the shelf.
which i made over a year ago, but am only just now getting around to using.
thought i’d do another periscope directly on the heels of yesterday’s broadcast. i’ll “scope” again next weekend. a lot of you have asked about periscope so i’ll refer you HERE for a summary. I haven’t quite figured out how to film in landscape mode. but if you put your iphone or ipad on a flat surface and turn it so the video appears in landscape that’s a work-around. it’s what i do as a viewer. hopefully i’ll get better at checking my ipad for comments, so i can respond and/or answer questions. when i watched the replay i noticed i completely ignored some people who were nice enough to comment. also big thanks to everyone who tapped their screens and sent some periscope love (hearts) my way. not necessary to do, but it does feel good to see them coming through when you’re on the other end of the broadcast and fumbling your way through it.
a lot of people have asked me who i watch regularly. augustwren & ohnmarwin. both wonderful! someone i’ve seen less often, but have enjoyed is victoriajohnson. michelecooper (very talented urban sketcher) is another one i hope to catch soon. watercolorists, sketchbook keepers, illustrators, travelers – all of those categories interest me greatly!
i’d love to see some of you working in your journals & sketchbooks so let me know if you start doing any live broadcasts.
on today’s broadcast (which is available to watch until tomorrow around 2 pm) i worked on my first page in my new sketchbook. for those of you who watched you’ll notice i made some changes after the broadcast ended.
