Rainy Day scribble practice

May 15, 2013

Rain. I didn’t expect it to really come, having hoped to do a bit more yard work today. Not that a little rain will keep me from the outdoors! But here we are, Moby & I, spending some quality time indoors exploring pencils and charcoal again. I probably should be experimenting with a watercolor wash over kozo paper for a commissioned piece. Maybe on Friday!

I decided, while in Idaho, to get serious about sketching. Today seems like a great day to pull out the sketchbook and try a little. I think the blank pages are sometimes hard to get started on. Anyway, here is what I picked: another quick sheep in pencil… looking at eye/ear placement. I’ve started to grow fond of sheep. ๐Ÿ™‚


Next, I went a bit crazy trying to figure out a face. I won’t say who it is, cause it doesn’t look a bit like them! I can’t recall the last face I’ve done. So many placement issues but fun to practice with! I think you, dear readers, will be subjected to my bad drawing for weeks to come! Ha!


Looks like the sun is starting to break through. Time to get outside!

      It was really more like scritching and smearing rather than scribbling, but I’m trying to get back into it. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hope Sparta and Ming are happy you’re home. Nigel and MeMe sure were! Nigel plopped himself in my lap within 5 min after getting stuff in the front door.

        aaawwww sweet. They weren’t too sure at first but after a few minutes Ming realised that I’m the schmuck who gives her cheese on demand!
