Sketchbook Magic from Colorado

Hi everyone,

My name is Lille (lily). I have enjoyed your inspiring class, Ria, and although I'm not currently able to sketch every day, I do carry my skecthbook and basic supplies with me everywhere I go. I live in a very rural area of Colorado and our lifestyle (which we LOVE) consists of trips to town to shop or do our day-to-day business. Since I am a working artist, my days are full of creating even if I can't sit down everyday and document my magical days here with all of you.

So a part of my "weekly" practice when we go to town to shop for supplies always includes a stop at a quaint, cozy coffee shop or restaurant in between shopping. I give myself the time it takes from when we first sit down until our food arrives to sketch in ink an intersting scene from my vantage point. I put my pen and sketchbook down while we eat. Then I allow myself about 5 minutes to wrap up any details while we're finishing our coffee or taking care of the guest check. Somes days I have time to add the paint before we leave, but if not, I take a quick picture on my phone to capture the color mostly to add in later at home.

Thank you, Ria, for feeding us with inspiration/tools to make art a part of our daily lives just as food and water and air are and for each one of you sharing your art with us.

Below are a few more from my sketchbook.
