drawing: snowboarding turtle

My turtle is now competing in Snowboarding, with multiple clean 1080’s on the halfpipe!
Go for the Gold, turtle!

This episode is filmed in the Winter which can be tough for fishing in general. It is a 48-degree day, and I challenge myself to try to catch a Carp, which are a big-sized fish, from my canoe. Can I catch a carp with stealth, persistence and a lot of patience? Check out my video :)

Plus, I see a cluster of noisy blackbirds in the trees.

Welcome to my Bite-sized Fishing series in the New Year! This is the latest in the winter season I try to catch Bluegill and Perch, before the lake turns to ice. Plus, I get some sightings of the awesome Kingfisher bird while on the water.

This was filmed in the week after New Years Day when there was a warmish day of 48 degrees. I brave it because there is no wind to ruin my canoeing experience. I simply use a live worm as bait because none of the fish were interested in artificial baits, this time.

Thanks for watching!

In this episode of my Bite-sized Fishing Series, it is a cold weather day where I do canoe/kayak fishing for fun panfish. I also give you a tour of My Canoe Setup and show you the gear I carry while on the water.

Plus, my cute lazy cats cameo in my video, and I get a cool sighting of Hooded Merganser Ducks during the late winter.

Thank you for watching everybody!

On an ominous foggy winter day, I go canoe fishing and use the Humminbird Fishing Buddy 120 to help me find a fish in a barren lake. It is hard to spot any fish in this cold water because they are all gone, dispersed or simply lethargic. Eventually, I do catch a nice fish, and its a new species for me! What do you think I catch?

By the way, remember the Kingfisher I had mentioned in my previous post? Well, I feature the sighting of that very bird, as it is scouting for food, in my video. Luckily, I have my camera and that is how I am able to draw a rendition of the little critter (when I got home later).

In a way, the Kingfisher and I compete to catch a fish. Who will win this competition? Check out my video and enjoy!

sketch: the ice skater

January 30, 2021

Figure skating as a competitive sport has always fascinated me. Athletes spend their whole lives practicing, and then are judged for a few minutes. I do admire the beauty and the drama that they display for the world, to acheive the gold medal. My drawing is of an Ice Skater, executing a perfect landing.

The Olympics have been a joy to watch, and for me, a great way to practice figural drawing in action. Racing for the finish line, my drawing is of a cross-country skier going for the Gold.

Did you get to see the less popular spectator sports such as Biathlon and Cross-country skiing? And who knew that pushing a rock and sweeping, called Curling, could be such a nail-biting experience?

This is my little drawing of a Red-Eared Turtle, commonly found in the fresh waters of North America. It is inspired by my pet turtles.

It has been a rather cold winter and I made a short video of How to Keep Your Turtle Warm. If you have pet reptiles and an aquarium too, please feel free to check it out: https://youtu.be/yJQiEjiZ5bY

Let me know what you think :)

It is has only recently become cold in my area. And so winter activities come to mind. My sketch shows an ice skater enjoying the start of the winter weather. What is your favorite thing to do during the winter?

It’s a nice long Presidents weekend. A good time to go outside to ski, snowboard or ice skate. What winter activity do you like to do?
