Lost Day Sketch

The excitement of painting, sketching and going out to be with other artists must have been the cause of why I missed posting on January 13.  Maybe it was because of Friday 13.  It was a lost day for posting.

I did sketch in the big book with a still life of several items.  I used the sort of sepia colored Micron 005 and worked at the dining room table.

For Scavenger Hunt 481

Number 2, paper - napkins
Number 3, rock - a little rock saved from North Carolina
Number 4,  plastic - pepper container
Number 5, glass - butter dish
Number 6, wood - carved wooden grapes from Ecuador (a gift)

As you see, I posted the pastel out of order in the previous post.  It should be Number 7.

I'm glad you're working your way through that ginormous sketch book. I would not blame you if you abandoned it, though. :-)

I like the way this looks in the sepia! How far along are you in that big book?

Hmm, carved grapes from Ecuador!

Joanna, Actually it is interesting having so many sketches together. I might have finished a small book, right? We'll see if I give out! It and the Hunts keep me sketching.

Joan, yes, it is good to change around, even if it is only color. I think I have about 30 pages done out of 300 or so!

Bag Blog, after the fire a friend gave us some stuff from Ecuador that she got way back in the 60s when she was in the Peace Corp. She knew I would miss my South America stuff. Gene's sisters and others in the family gave us back stuff we had sent them and one that Gene's mom had was a wall hanging from Ecuador. Interesting and nice.

nice arrangement of objects and the pen colour is really pretty :) I like the colour a lot

Thanks, Jennifer Rose. I get in a rut and use the same pen. Changes are good once in a while.
