I went to my local library this week to get some respite from the heat. In addition to cooling down, I also managed to use up several sheets of canvas paper in a journal that I'm trying to finish.
Roz of "Roz Wound Up" is one of my journal heroes. She draws and paints like a pro (OK, she is a pro), keeps a visual journal and makes her own journals. She wrote (in the blog post linked above) that one way of using up a partially filled journal is to take it to life drawing class. I don't do life drawing classes, but I can go somewhere and draw people, right? She was right....I burned through several pages in half an hour.
I wasn't going to post all of these drawings, but now that I see them, they kind of tell a story about my afternoon. First I did some warm-ups.

All in all, a successful and cool way to spend some time! Now I have to get back to that journal.....
