We were at BelleVille Water Front festival, watching the Drums and Bugles...It was a bright day and the evening sun brought in some colourful display with a bunch of clouds trying to move in....

No means I consider this a sketch.....but WTH, I did it *wink* ....REcently I had driven down to drop a couple of guys(Am I a official chaffeur or what? ) at Wonderland and was supposed to pick them at 8:30 PM...I came there sharp and waited till 10:45 PM (yep, mean guys they were and patient guy wasnt I? During that wait I tried to see how a willow charcoal flows on paper...Believe me, though I like pencil sketches a lot, charcoal can be very messy to of the toughest medium.....

Last friday, I was alone and thought I'll try learning few basics in sketching. My reference was the squirrel picture my friend took a while ago. The exercise was to learn how to draw thin hairlines. I'm pretty much happy at the output on the right *smile*.

Materials I used are 2H and 6B pencils on a Acid Free Sketch book

Things I liked about this pic was the
1. eyes
2. hair lines of the tail and rear limbs

Things I think I need to improve are
1. proportion - look at the original, the head is not shaped like a traingle at all, as it should have been
2. the sketch must be a little brighter
3. Have more patience *nods myhead diligently*
