Got back out to the Garden of the Gods, this time in the morning with good lighting and before the crowds. Thanks for the tip +Walter Cote!

I took my sketchbook with me hiking a ridge line in Colorado mountains near Salida today and found this old gnarly, twisted tree to sketch. Incredible place!

I love it here. If I'm heading over that way south of Salida, I'll check it out, thanks.

There was an envelope and a pen laying around when I watched a movie tonight. These were really quick sketches and not many caught the likeness, but just for fun, can you guess which movie it was? #marvel #sketch #pen #drawing #actors #guessthemovie

This is a very well written tutorial for plein air painting by a very accomplished artist, Prokopenko (YouTube: Proko). It's worth your time to read it! 
With a landscape you have a lot more freedom to change shapes and move things around. As soon as I realized that I don't have to get every shape the right size and in the right place, I loosened up and started designing my own shapes

This is a study of hands today from the Figure & Gesture Drawing class. I hope to express emotion better in figure drawings. The class mode for hands has excellent images progressing from quick sketches up to the 30 minute pose.

I went out to Garden of the Gods (Colorado Springs) for some plein air and fixed up the sketch back in the studio. Long story; fun time.

Tonight's figure study, I try to only post "pg" material to my public profile, else non-artist minds may wander where they're not supposed to. I post all studies to Figurative Drawing Community in case you want to view others. This study was inspired by viewing Jeremy Lipking's amazing works.

Story
Tagline
artist (painter), welder and professional student
Introduction
I'm an artist, mostly enjoying landscapes en plein air painting. I post updates to the latest paintings my En Plein Air blog. I also love the outdoors, especially backpacking.  I started the Appalachian Trail on 2011 and 2013 and now write and paint about these travels in my AT Blog.  I've also found the AT isn't just about the trail, but the people on it. So, most recently, I've dug into figure and portrait drawing in my Life Drawing Studies blog. I tag my lifedrawings with #SWLifeDrawings to make it easier to search by phone, but keep them off my public profile. 
Bragging rights
I've won a few awards here and there... : )
