These particular photos were taken on Memorial Day. I was off work and decided to have a beverage before heading home for a barbecue fiesta. This cool peach and salmon floral dress that I'm wearing is a new one I found at my favorite thrift store. I don't wear this color too often but sometimes it's nice to switch it up.
At one point my phone decided to jump off the edge while I had it standing up for a photo and it self-timed a pic! I looked over o see if it was still in one piece before running downstairs to retrieve it.
And after photo time I decided to do a little sketching. After a quick warm-up, black ink sketch of the plant, I thought a drawing of the color pencil variety would be fun. And what better subject is there than Lord of the Rings?!! I thought about a scene in Hobbiton, or my favorite Middle Earth culture, the Rohirim, but for some reason I was in the mood for the darkness of Mordor, with the bright Eye watching from above. I haven't used colored pencils in a while so it was a fun exercise.
