Precisely what it says on the tin - yesterday I went for a walk and passed by a horse ranch, and I took a few minutes to sketch the horse, than colored it at home.

He(?) really is that chubby :) in other note, I didn't do the hair color correctly, he had more whiter patches on the back but I was very quick and imprecise about it.
I haven't updated this blog in a long time, so here are some selected entries from various short trips I've taken in the past few weeks.
Orchid branch I painted at my parents' place during my Easter visit. Watercolor in a small Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.
View over the Kvarner bay from the hill Veli Vrh I sketched last weekend. Pencil and watercolor in a Canson sketchbook.

If you're wondering what else I've been doing, you might want to check out my post on my other blog: Komfor band logo design process. There are a lot of sketches in that post as well.
This weekend I went for a yoga retreat with 9 women from my yoga class. It was wonderful, the best vacation I had since summer. Of course I took a bunch of drawing supplies as I always do, and as usual - not much drawing was done since I barely had the time for it. Here are a couple of quick sketches.
View from my room window of a gazebo in the snow. Watercolor and brush pen in a small Moleskine watercolor notebook.
Fuzine and Bajer lake quick sketch with graphite pencil and watercolor in a Canson sketchbook.
I don't get to update this blog so often, but for the past 2 and a half months I managed to sketch every single day. I'm very pleased with how that's going. The trick was to put it on my task list along with everything else that has to be done.
There's a lot going on right now in terms of projects, but once that's done I'll be able to dedicate my time to my personal work, I hope.
Today a few of my friends met up at a coffee shop at the top of a building with a nice view, and we sketched for 2 hours. Unfortunately our obligations didn't allow us to spend the entire day sketching like we did last time. Here are my 2 sketches:
My friend Maja done with sanguine, black and white pencils on toned paper.
Maja's little sister Nina done with watercolor in a sketchbook.
And here are some photos so you can compare haha! :)
My sketching partners Nina, Josipa and Maja happily sketching away:
And here are Nina, me and Maja with our portraits: Nina's drawing of me, and my drawings of Nina and Maja. (We forgot to include Nina's drawing of Maja which is also wonderful!)
Next time we're spending an entire afternoon sketching outside, promise :)
I was a bit sick the other day and drank a shitload of tea (like, 5x more than I usually drink) so the teapot and the cup were a logical motif for my still life studies.
