Another Week of DRAWING, DRAWING, DRAWING!!!
Working backwards in the week, I drew yesterday at Tacos Jalisco over lunch. I don't go as often as I once did, but have been there last week and this where I draw the local color.
Then I did a bit of bragging at Sketchbook Skool where I posted some of my sixty plus portraits I have been drawing there of my Klassmates and teachers and the klassmates pets.
I had a bit of a drawing breakdown from doing so much at such a frantic pace ... I need to slow down a bit, but I still want to continue doing these portraits. The next semester of Sketchbook Skool starts July 4th. I can't say enough how much fun it is, I'm taking Semester 2! The international community of artists is something beyond special, warm, friendly, helpful, inspiring, and kind.
It's been money worth spent.
Here are a few more portraits done ... with their bright spots and mistakes, although Tommy Kane says there are no mistakes. Just carry on, so I do.
And then there is the one I did of myself, as I slide into my 73rd year this month! Rather daunting when you look at the candles on that cake! No wonder I look like a deer in the headlights, frightened.
But I shouldn't be. Just joyful I have made it this far, and excited to see what the new year brings! I promise to do my best to make the most of it and hopefully many more to come.
One of our challenges was to draw our house, or houses, in SBS. I drew ours.
The book is a large moleskin and I used the whole two pages to get both stories of our house into the picture. I had to turn the book sideways to draw the car. Some decided I was a poor car-parker, others that the car was simply tired and lying down for a rest. You can describe it anyway you wish.
Have a creative week. Pace yourself. I am trying to learn to do that, but failing miserably.
Happy Paint Party Friday!
Do come visit us at Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens as well! We have a lot of fun there too. You can join in the drawing to a theme if you wish. Just let me know you are interested.
