Happy 4th and Happy Birthday to me!

Since it's my birthday I took the morning off to scan some pages from my sketchbook. Top page is from Friday night out with friends. Next is children playing in the fountain at Pacific theatre in Culver. Followed by sketched from various events but mainly from Sketch Club.

Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th and enjoys that extra day off!!! :]

nice stuff.. do you apply all the watercolour on location?

Kendra Melton said...

Thanks Brian, most of these were colored on location. There are a couple where I couldn't color them on site for whatever reason so I colored them later at home. For example the first page those were done at a Gallery Opening standing up so I had to wait until I got home to apply color. But All the kids and the majority of the people on the last page were all done on site. Typically if I can sit down I'll color just about anywhere. It just becomes a bit too much like a juggling act to stand and watercolor, though I have done it. Space and crowd size are also a factor hehe. I try to keep everything on location, it's one of my sketchbook goals :]
