Sketching in the Park

I'm taking a sketchbook drawing class on Craftsy and one of our lessons is to put a person in a sketch.  Not a detailed drawing of them, just put them in there as part of the scene.  It's a challenge because they're in motion.  This is my first attempt and I'm happy with it.  Next time, I hope to make it look as if they are in motion :)    
Another exercise from the class is working with pencils and conveying value, shape and texture through different type of marks, shading and pencil leads. 

I liked the challenge of the spools of this one.  This was my first drawing of the bunch and had to re-work the spools a bit.
