When we got back from our walk, I checked blogs and wetcanvas. I decided to sketch here at my computer desk. I could see several items or substitutes from here, or part of them. I sketched in the large sketchbook with a Pilot ball point pen. The pen is for writing, but makes nice lines and usually does not leak or leave globs or fuzz on the paper. I use this brand in my sketchbooks for the car and purse.
Number 1, furniture - the umbrella stand used for Gene's cane collection.
Number 2, decoration - the wall hanging David made for me. The fleur de lis on it are very pretty and cast beautiful shadows on the wall. I could not depict that in the small space I was using.
Number 3, curtain - substituted the shutters on the window
Number 4, lamp - substituted the ceiling light
There is a great underpainting article on Richard McKinley's blog with some exercises to try. Maybe I will do them. Sure...... It is such a good idea to practice. It might get me to paint. Hmmm.
