After putting everything away and putting up the flowers (wall sconces - cats eat flowers otherwise) I was sweaty and tired. I have not been sleeping well (anxiety dreams about projects at work). So I took a shower after which I was still sweating and tired and now crabby.
So my dear wife, who knows me better than I do, asked me what I wanted to do. I wanted to draw. So though I had been complaining about the heat, I went back out in the hot garage to do pastels. The family had lunch without me.
And I'm glad I did. These three are the best in this series so far. I knocked them out in an hour and half that felt like 15 minutes to me. Then I ate lunch. The habanero-like peppers were sweet and tasted like flowers, the padrons were hot.
And you should see the automatic drawings that happen just before I sleep. You can, if you stay tuned. I have probably 18 of them to post. I no longer can just turn off the light and go to sleep - a drawing must be done, first...
Drawings for the pastels are below - ball point and then Sharpie. Two of them were rotated before Sharpie time. All pastel, ball point and Sharpie on kraft paper - 18 x 24 inches. Click any image for a closer view.
