Sunday Sketches - The Canada Geese go for a Stroll

I have finally started my new sketchbook/journal "Walking in my World" based on things I see when out for a walk and loosely inspired by Julia Cameron's Walking in this World: The Practical Art of Creativity. I haven't really started the exercises in this book and guess I won't for awhile as a friend wants me to do The Artist's Way with her, so that will come first. In the meantime though I will go with my interpretation of the title and sketch things I see when walking.

This week I had a lovely walk around a small island in the middle of the river. Lots of ideas for further pages! To start off, here is a Mother (Canada) Goose and her chicks walking in their world... for Sunday Sketches with Sophia at Blue Chair Diary.

  3. The watercolour is wonderful and I love the chica walking in her world...very cool how those skies seem to blend together.

    As for the "Walking in This World..." book by JC, I will click on the link and possibly join you for that one as well. Sounds intriguing!

    p.s. When you live in Canada, do you call them "Canadian geese", or are they just "geese"? hee hee
