Summer loving–drawing outdoors

Roller Blade SketchBicycle sketch

Exercise your way to happiness. Exercise gets the brain to release the good stuff – endorphins – to make us feel better. And with summer just around the corner, there is no excuse.

Last week when I was drawing outdoors, I felt the urge to draw a bicycle, and then roller blades. It must be the warmer weather… I am going to be dusting off those cobwebs building up on my roller blades and bicycle, and putting them to use – perhaps to get to my next outdoor drawing session with friends this weekend.

What are you doing this weekend?

Paint Party Friday

      Thanks - having a dog helps to get one moving. Not suggesting that you need that but I know I do! I am sure you will have fun on your walks. Happy weekend, Ev

  20. Love what you say here >> Exercise your way to happiness. It's true I always feel happy after exercising. The problem is getting myself to do it is very hard :(

    I like your bicycle drawing. I think drawing bicycle is hard, with all the details. You did a good job!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Glad you like my DIY :)
