A new enjoyable routine

It's been an inspiring week. I found an image on Pixabay and started a drawing of a soap bubble, it's got a nice, summer feeling to it. It's a chance to test out some of the things I learned at Sharpened Artist Academy this week, a few time saving tricks that are very welcome. :) Color pencil drawings take a lot of time, but that is part of the appeal for me. I like the control I have over both shape and color when I use pencils. But of course, if I can learn to save some time here and there, I will. 

I have quite a nice routine going now. I usually watch the weekly class from SAA on Sunday afternoon, and on Monday at work I listen to the Color Pencil Podcast. My week gets off to a really nice start this way.
