I'm not super happy with these sketches. I did use a Prismacolor Premier 03 for sketching and can do a bit better with less work than on the iPad. I of course sketched out on the porch except for the belt and jeans. You know artists can produce or make better art when we are comfortable and in a good mood. Therefore, I'm not sure that I really accomplish "practice" when I'm not 100% involved and you can tell with these sketches.
I will be brave and post them anyway.
Number 7, foot
Number 9, nails and Number 10, favorite tool - well, at the moment. I'm pretty sure pastels are my all time favorite. It is good practice to hold the pen in my left hand and then use it to sketch with my right hand. I probably switched it back and forth about 4 times. Pretty accurate in length and width. You can tell I felt better yesterday.
For my art link have a look at the show at Insights Gallery in Fredericksburg this month featuring John Fawcett.
Doesn't it look fantastic? I would love to go. Super prices on the artwork, too. :)
Tomorrow it is check up, deliver a painting to ASH, see the sidebar, and get Gene's new Terra Trike looked at. It will be a long day.
Speaking of trikes, Gene has been having trouble riding his bicycle for several months. It is a balance problem with his PD. He did pretty well in Albuquerque with the bike paths dedicated to biking and walking with no streets to cross, etc. He rode twice here and fell both times, riding about 10 miles each time, which was great but hard on the old body. We were both banged up. Sigh..... He was riding for his birthday. He has a goal to ride 100 miles on his birthday. He accomplished that many times in the past. Last year he made 50 miles.
Now, he took the plunge back to childhood and got a TerraTrike. Pretty darn cool. It is comfortable and he rode a couple of times already. You can see photos below of his birthday ride on his regular bike and then the new one. It is so good for him to be out and exercise. Yay!!
