Los Rios Street

This sketch was done at Los Rios Street in San Juan Capistrano. I was chatting with friends now and then so I did this in bits and pieces. First brush pen, colored it with watercolor paint then added a bit of rapido sketch pen.

Wolf Moon

I belong to a Facebook group that posts a moon for every month. I just got mine in on the 29th. I kept it simple with colored pencil but there are some beautiful posts so far.

JANUARY – Full Wolf Moon Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages.
