journal sketches

I have rediscovered Staedler and Tombow brush tipped markers and got on to a realism streak with journal sketches lately. Of course the fact that everything is sprouting and blooming furiously is only adding to my desire to draw from nature. So here is a selection:and today I started on objects, will this be an object drawing streak? Tune in to find out... oh and the reason I am drawing on the right side of the journal and not on both pages is because I am seeing the previous drawing show through and it bugs me. May have to figure out a way to diguise it... and note to self for future journals - need thicker paper!
