About a week ago I went for a short walk looking for something to draw. I sat on the steps of a church and drew part of The Medary School. It is a huge old school that is still being used. It has a lot of interesting architectural details and was pretty fun and challenging to draw. It was very windy that day so it was also a challenge to hold the paper down and keep my hair out of my face while I was drawing. While I was sitting on the steps a mocking bird was sitting up on a wire entertaining me with its songs. One of the sounds it made was a hawk, which was funny. I wonder if the other birds can tell that it is not a real hawk sound. I didn't draw anything all last week, I need to get back into the habit.

Crayola Markers. Do you ever set up rules for a drawing before you start?

PITT Artist Superfine Pen. The next day I decided I needed some Crayola Markers so I went and picked some up at Target then came home and colored this page. Some people out there may not take Crayola Markers seriously as a drawing medium but I have used all kinds of fancy markers and haven't found any so vibrant! Also they are now really environmental as a company and use recycled plastic for the marker barrels. I have drawings I did with Crayolas from over 10 years ago and the color has held up great! I just bought the bold colors but I really should have went for the 64 pack! I can't believe they have 64 different colored markers! The only trouble with the big pack is that they are short, made for little kid hands. I didn't draw anything for about a week but in the past couple of days I have done quite a few drawings so I think my little dry spell is over. Sometimes life just gets too hectic!
