Sketchbook Skool

My life has been on slow down for a few weeks. The upside is that I sit and draw, sew, read and take naps. Pretty nice. So I've done some self portraits and will continue to do them as I learn so much with each attempt.

Flowers are always a nice subject, so I've done these with Inktense pencils. I'm  beginning to appreciate their qualities. I can draw the shape and have it gently disappear with a touch of water.

The last picture is of a mug as I don't have any pretty teacups, a subject that Liz Steel loves. But, her guidelines certainly help in understand the subject!

Finally, I seem to be enjoying the process and feel better about my understanding of the art of drawing.
