What can I do with a black pen?

I am trying something new, starting today. Lately, I have been feeling overwhelmed, and easily distracted. My sketchbook, a place supposed to be a well of inspiration, has become filled with disjointed, half finished sketches. I have become sloppy and have lost my concentration. I can’t seem to decide what or how to draw things […]

Deerfield River

I hope everyone is having a nice long weekend. I am having having a very relaxing couple of days myself, by taking a little bit of a break from drawing actually. I have been taking some scenic drives in the country and watching lots of movies. Also, my laptop is having a bit of an […]

Seashells, interior and exterior

I put off posting earlier this week, not because I had nothing to say, but because I had so much other stuff going on. On Friday I had my first acrylic painting class (which I will write a separate post on). I have also been doing lots of other painting and drawing.  Partly because I had […]

Pond View: Czech Republic VPO

I did this more than a week ago for May’s VPO and even though I do like how it came out, I kept telling myself that I was going to start over and do another version that I liked better. I have so many things that I want to paint and draw these days that I […]

Egg Bowl

I have this little bowl, a cheap Christmas Tree Shops special, gifted to me by one of my sisters. It’s has a misshapen appearance with the oddest curves and bumps and uneven glazing. I have had numerous opportunities to get rid of this bowl (and I almost did a few months ago when cleaning out my […]

Baby Sketch 1

I decided to make some practice baby sketches from some photos on flickr before undertaking the drawing that I want to make. I thought it would be easier to draw some random stranger’s baby before I make an attempt at a baby I actually know. It worked well for this practice sketch. I think it felt […]
