Scavenger Hunt 60, bed ... Lisa

I finally got a sketch done for the Scavenger Hunts on wetcanvas.com. I have been busy and ..... excuses, excuses. I worked on the Chile Store painting so did a sketch yesterday to warm up.



#1 is your bed. This is a 10 - 15 minute sketch in the NY sketchbook. I used the new Faber-Castell artists pen. I am disappointed in this pen. It is much like a Sharpie so, not particularly great for sketching. Oh well, good for notes and a quick value sketch, maybe. It didn't bleed like a Sharpie, so maybe I'm just used to the extra fine nibs now.

I was looking through the sketches and I like Lisa's so much that I decided to make a link to L. P. Boni. Her sketches are beautiful, take a look. She has a few blogs one for painting, sketching and a general one. Interesting. She is in Flagstaff, Arizona.

I will be posting about the workshop I'm going to with Regina next week. Stand by for that.

I like your sketch Jo! I have always loved the idea of keeping a sketchbook diary of your life. It's something I've never done but have always thought would be neat.

Kasie, the blog is the closest I have ever come to a journal. I have started a few and get in about 10 entries. Thanks for your note.

The tilt of the lampshade and the way the pillows sort of lean into one another. I really like the life in this sketch1

Thanks, Leslie. Interesting how the feel comes through, sometimes, huh? Sort of an accident.
