This week’s art activity was sketching at the Japanese Garden. I have only been to the garden a few times before. I really like the scenery in the garden. The koi pond is really cool because you can buy food to feed the fish. I sat at a bench near the back of the garden. I chose this spot because it had a good view of the pond. My first sketch was of my view of the pond. Because I had some experience with sketching, I thought ts activity was not very difficult. My sketches were really quick sketches without much detail. I focused on drawing the entire scenery before I start to add details. I did two of these scenery sketches.
My other sketches were mostly of the ducks. It was difficult to draw them because they were always moving. I tried to take in as much detail of the duck at once and tried to draw that on the paper.
