wedding rug to date

I am taking a Travel Sketch Journal workshop all this week and I am having an amazing time. I have been sketching in my journal for a few years now -- first fueled by Danny Gregory's wonderful book. But this course  is giving me a chance to learn some of the basics like perspective and proportion--and how to say it all in a few strokes of the pen and paint brush. I will post more about it soon, and maybe, if I am brave, include a couple of my sketches. Let me just say that my best sketches are done in the five-minute stopwatch time at the end of the day. At that point, I am tired enough and rushed enough to finally quiet my left brain. Whew--I love it when that left brain finally stops chatting. In the meantime, I had a chance to take some photos of the wedding rug today. The major characters have appeared on the roof. This was not really in my plan but I am very happy with them -- so I am now thinking that the border of birds may become a border of hearts. I will hook some more on the background and see what feels right.
