Current favorite quick sketch for #INKtober
And here are a few others.
Starting up my 5 second sketches again – really have missed them! I have been away from drawing since prior to organizing a house move.
The first set was very stiff (I photograph hummers, but have never drawn them); however, by page 2 I began to loosen up.
It made it very clear to me that practice is essential for an for me to remain active as an artist, no matter how many years I have been creating. Thus – I am making a commitment to get back to regular drawing. It is a happy decision. See you around!
This year was about packing and moving to a new home. We moved in May and I am just now beginning to get back into my creative world. Mostly with home projects and photography.
I have begun exploring chalky furniture paint, lime wash, and wax. A new experience and I am liking it, although I am tentative with “distressing” the pieces. It is so hard, once I paint something, to then turn around and destroy it!
One large unfinished dresser was my first experiment, sporting a pale seaside teal theme.
And this weekend it was an old china cabinet in grey chalky paint / lime wash and given a bubble glass treatment. One more small china cabinet to go, and then back to children’s furniture. My theme song is “lots to do, lots to do!”
It is the year for white puppies! Another Westie…
I have always been fascinated by patterns in cloth. They have to be “just so”, but when they are, I fall in love. No, I can’t explain what “just so” is, but I found it in a purse this week and bought it.
Lesson: If you can find that special ingredient, people will willingly part with their hard earned money just to own it.
