I skipped two weeks of blogging, too busy (and forgetful) with other things.
I finished Sktchy30 drawing a portrait and night for 30 nights. They could have been done in the daytime, but that's when I draw in coffee houses like Starbucks and Barnes & Noble Café.
I have lots of those, but none posted today. Will chose the best of them for another post another week. I may have posted some of these earlier in April, but I wanted a place to put them all together. So if you are a weekly visitor scroll down until you find the ones you haven't yet seen, or enjoy them all again.
I did a few Free Draws. This one is our eldest grandson.
And this is our second grand child, his sister ...
And our youngest grandchild, their little sister. I'd drawn our other two (twin) grandchildren last month and posted them here.
The folks at Sktchy are great about loading photos of themselves with a wonderful array of expressions to choose from.
Geri drew me and I drew her back. Then she and I did some collaborative work on Sktchy.
This was also my first *PICKED portrait by Sktchy! Boy am I proud!
Jordan was my first attempt using pencil.
And Maya was my second pencil drawing.
And then back to using ink. Do you recognize Mike from "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul"?
And then a mix of black and white with a bit of color
And just ink
Back to using my Copic markers. The pink background was an accident of my photo taking at night with poor lighting.
My first of two drawings of Paul this month.
She had light reflecting on her glasses.
Oh, and she recognized herself when she saw my drawing.
Now that is the highest compliment for me!
This is my second drawing of Paul this month. In the first he is wearing the red Fez.
Elizabeth is another Draw Back. It's great fun when someone draws you and you can return the favor.
This is my second PICKED * Sktchy (award)!
And last but not least, Danica, who I drew last night, on April 30th. I will continue drawing portraits from Sktchy, and I will continue drawing in my urban sketching journals as well. I hope you enjoyed your visit today and will return again to see more.
Some of you know I have been the Co. Admin. of the blog Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens for several years, a blog where other artists can join in drawing to a theme. I have decided to drop out as Admin. and have turned over the running of that Blog and ownership to Beverly Baird. I hope you will still go there whether or not it continues to show up on Paint Party Friday's list and support all the artists there. Thank you for your support in the past when it was my blog I shared with Ann Hyde.
I wish you a Creative Week and a Happy Paint Party Friday.
