Daily Sketching

Sketching in front of the full length mirror is fun... I especially like to draw the folds in clothing, and foreshortening (like my drawing arm in the above sketch) is challenging! But, the mirror is not in my room, so I don't always have access to it!

So, what catches my eye? The shadows and swoops of the sticker paper coming out of my stamp roll holder! and the curves of my track ball on my computer desk.

And then I wanted to try drawing some hands. The first one looked terrible when I finished it, thus the "foo"... but now that I see it with fresh eyes, it's not too horrid.

The sketch of my work area actually began as a sketch of my hand on my knee. Then Significant Other walked in and said "nice drawing of your toes".

*laughs* I looked at the picture, erased most of it, abandoned it. And started this drawing of my toes. huh, much better!

This has happened a few times now. Sometimes I keep the bad sketch, because it is so far along, and sometimes the bad sketch is tossed in the recycling bin! But there is always a decent sketch of the day to scan in for the web site. So far, at least!


And 26 postcards and notecards sent this week! I need to work on some thank you notes and letters in the coming week, so my total for next week will be down.
