Journal sketch

I am constantly learning. Actually, I think that Michaelangelo said the same thing. This is the houseplant on our kitchen table. I am congratulating me for not doing a tiny anemic drawing and for not freaking out because the shading may not be perfect, etc. Believe that Danny's idea to just record the moment is the point. Oh yes, I've taken rubber stamp pads to color the page before doing the drawing.

This is nice, and there is no reason to freak out about anything. Lovely lines.

This is lovely. I like the pattern that your pen work made of the leaves contrasted with the soft colors underneath.

Hi Sandra: I like this -- using the rubber stamp prior to drawing adds another dimension to the piece,

Love the lines, and what a delightful subject ^^

Mary said...

Very nice, Sandra! I think I also need to relax more when I'm sketching - I worry too much about not achieving a perfect result every time. Must remember it's meant to be fun!

Very nice drawing, and I like your background and the idea of doing it before the drawing.
Very interesting your experiment in fuse glass.

Makes me want to dig out my stamps too! What a lot of detail in the leaves too!

I like it. I laughed at your "tiny, anemic drawing". Whenever I am not sure about how to draw something I resort to tiny. I think you did a pretty detailed drawing here and capturing the moment IS the point.
