Ladder Ink Sketch

Gene's ladders are out in the garage hanging on the wall.  I used the hood of the car for a (slanted) table and a Prismacolor 05 fine line pen/marker for my tools in the big book.  I did a quick freehand sketch.  The nib on the pen is wearing out so the lines are a bit fuzzy.  Interesting to me.

Number 6 ladder - you get two for the price of one.

It is a beautiful day again.

Sunrise was sort of a blue sky.  Lovely.  It is 64 degrees now, pretty perfect, right?

The Longhorns played baseball at Rice in Houston last night.  I forgot to listen!  Can't believe I missed the first game.  The Horns beat the Owls 7-4.  Hope I remember for the 5:00 p.m. game today.  I think Rice will stream the game but our internet is not great and it will re-buffer so I'm not paying for that. 

I'm adding a section of sketches and studies to my website where you can see and maybe purchase them.  A chance to have an original at a much lower price.  We will see how it goes.

Jennifer Rose that comments here is doing life form digital drawings daily and putting up a short video with each sketch.  Fun to watch.  You can also see her Christmas sketches on the blog, just go back in the history/archives. Those are really nice.

I like the 2 for 1 ladder special. lol Good idea for a surface to rest on while you sketch!

Joan, thanks. The big book is definitely not a hold in your hand and sketch! I was going to get the ladders down and bring them in, then saw the car hood. Yay!

thanks for the shoutout :)
hubbys ladders are just propped up on the hall or against the shed, one is way too tall to put inside lol

Jennifer Rose, you are most welcome. I love the videos. They make me smile and learn. We have too many ladders probably. A couple of longer ones out in the shed, these are in the garage.

John has a few that are a few feet or so and the really tall one (about 7 feet) was for when he was still doing electrics, but comes in handy now if he needs to get on to the garage roof :)

Jennifer Rose, Short .... Gene has a folding one that goes to about 15 feet and can make a scaffold and another that slides together, must go to 20 when unfolded.
