Every Day in May/ Queen Liliuokalani Gardens

Some days you got the mojo and some you just don't, but the idea is to draw and post every day in May so here it is.

Maybe I can make a list of things I'd love to learn to paint/draw:
water, reflections, rocks, foliage

This is a gorgeous garden in Hilo right on bay. And well used too..we saw a lot of folks out on this beautiful evening.

I sat on the bench on this little red bridge to make my sketch...such a nice way to spend the evening.

While we were walking the garden, we found several little faerie homes! What a nice surprise!
You can see what others are doing every day in may at the flickr group Every Day in May.

Sketching Pohoiki Bay

My little sketch in progress

Today we just sat by the ocean and sketched. Fun, fun, fun. There are a ton of problems in this sketch...but did I enjoy myself? Absolutely! One of these days I'm going to take a water color course from Kate Johnson and learn how to use my watercolor pencils...but for now, I'll just keep muddling along.

My mom working on her sketch.

Mom shows her progress.

All done...I think.
