Corners of Home

I am doing the Sketchbook Skool class, and one of the lessons was draw squares on your page, and fill it with little spots in your house. I had so much fun with these. My furniture outgrew the squares though! is hard to draw that small, but so enjoyable. Probably a little cartoony!  I plan on doing some more!

New Sketches

I am taking one of the Sketchbook skool classes, and the lesson was on Cross hatching.  I didn't do too many on this old building but it's mainly for shadow and shapes.  I did it in ink, and took a photo, then I decided to put color on it. I love color!  The Cafe is an old building on the way to Carlsbad NM. I had to turn around and go back for a picture!  For this little painting I did a different technique.  I painted the page with yellow and white casein.  Then I drew with pencil after it dried, and painted it with watercolor and some gouache.
It was a fun piece to do.

Kenyon and Cash

This is a quick sketch of our grandson, Kenyon and his dog Cash. He loves his dog so much! They pretty much stay together.  They are so cute together. (of course)

While I was in New Mexico I did get a couple sketches done.  This is part of a beautiful Catholic Church.

March 14

This man was drawn from Sktchy. It is an app that has people to draw.  I want to learn to draw people fast. May take a while!

This girl was in a Magazine. I just used her for the practice.

Still Trying!

I still want to learn more about drawing so I did 3 more tonight. One is my cousin, one is from a magazine and one off of a tv program.  Still so much to learn!

I am mad at myself that I didn't make the 100 people in 5 days! After messing up the first two days, I couldn't catch up!
But I have the last day done. Next time I will number each one and try to be more organized! HA!

Day 4-#oneweek100people2017

Getting 20 done in a day is not an easy task!  I still am not getting a likeness in most of them. There are a couple that I did.  I am just going through pictures that I have taken and drawn them, since there is no place here to go and watch people!

This is draw or sketch 100 people in 5 days. I didn't pay attention so

So I will have to make those up!

Patriotic Barn

Right after 9-11, we were in another part of Texas, and we passed this barn in the country.
I love the flag, etc. and I actually did a painting soon afterwards, and sold it.  This is just a daily sketch, but brings back memories.  I didn't quite get it wide enough  but guess thats the fun of sketching, esp with ink.  I used my brown tobacco ink that I love so much.
