One of the gifts I made this year was for my son, an art journal depicting his early years. I stopped far short of getting all of his fifty years into the book, but promised to continue it on visits to his home in the future. It was a birthday gift given eight months late! This was the last drawing for the cover of the book. (Dan and his children and wife)
When I was in Portland last week we went to see "The Nutcracker Ballet". It was the first time I'd seen it! I was mesmerized.
Other gifts I made this year were drawings of family members. Above my dear brother, and below
my twin ten year old grand children.
Meanwhile back in Sketchbook Skool we started drawing cows... One of our Klassmates, Louise Fletcher, does these amazing cows. I liked them so much I bought a years worth of her cows on a calendar she produced for sale. Find it at Redbubble!
My cows here below were spotted along the road between Vacaville and Dixon, CA.
They were a friendly group just waiting for me to capture their likenesses. I think I did a better likeness of them than I did my family.
I'll keep practicing.
And finally, my last drawing is of a buffalo cow we saw a few years ago on one of our "out west" trips! Drawn from a photo I took then.
Thanks for coming to see what I drew this week! I appreciate your stops and your comments too.
Have a creative week.
