New Drawings...Day 134-140

I played catch-up again all last week.  This time of year there is just too much to do and way too little time to do it.  :)  But, with a few late nights (including last night, which is why this post is a bit late) I managed to get everything up to date.  Hope you enjoy them.  :)

The Latest Drawings from My Sketchbook

I did a lot of playing catch up with drawing this last week.  It seemed I spent the whole week at least a couple of days behind.  This week will probably be the same because I have band concerts Tuesday and Thursday evenings so I'll be extra busy.  Once I'm through with this week, though, summer "vacation" can officially begin...which usually means even more busyness--trips, gardening, family, outside projects.  :)

Latest Drawings / Paintings

This week I seemed to have a desire to paint buildings.  I'm not sure why but it's been good practice.  :)  I actually had a breakthrough with the second and third ones.  For the first time, I didn't overwork the painting.  Huge step for me.  :)  I would still like to be painting looser but one step at a time, huh?

Here they are.  :)

This one counted as two days--it took a lot longer than I thought it would.  ")

New Drawings are Here...

I had a lot of fun this week messing around with some pen and wash drawings.  I don't know why I love them so much except that the process of washing over the pen can transform a so-so drawing into something that looks really cool.  I even tried something that I always avoid--I drew a portrait.  It's not perfect (sorry Alex) but I got a lot closer than I thought I would.  Made me happy.  :)
