Toy Train Blind Contour

Blind Contour of one of my son's toy locomotives in my moleskine with a Pigma Micron pen while the kids jumped on the bed next to me! Last weekend was the Greater Kansas City Model Railroad Expo and the opening of the KC Rail Experience at Union Station. Check my Flickr page for lots of photos!

If you haven't been to Laura's blog, Laurelines, then drop in RIGHT NOW! She draws in color families and brushes in ink and is living Everyday. She looks at the things in front of her, cooking, at the market, in the garden and finds what her sketchbooks are filled with. Drawing every day is so essential to progressing as an artist, just as photographing every day is and we can look to Laura as an example of how not to be afraid of your materials and experiment and experience.

Draw something architectural. These buildings, at 2 East Emanuel Cleaver II Parkway, were the first ones my husband drew on AutoCAD and the first buildings from Black and Veatch to be done on AutoCAD. He did the structural and architectural drawings for them.
