Two Days Blue

You get two days of sketches for the price of one.  For Scavenger Hunt 688 I sketched in the living room on my footstool while we watched TV.  Another two for one idea, right?

We haven't acquired jigsaw puzzles.  We used to have many of them.  This one has been worked a few times, need to get another one.  Gene's mom loved puzzles and would make a new piece if any got lost.  She was very good at that, using cereal boxes for the cardboard and painting them and varnishing them.    We put together many puzzles.

From yesterday for  Scavenger Hunt 688

Number 2, in pieces - a jigsaw puzzle - in the big book with a Micron 02

Today I sketched on the porch.  Gene was on his trike and I was having my morning snack.  I only had my phone with me and thought I should be sketching.  Too lazy to go get the big book and items so just sketched with the App, Brushes, on my iPhone with my fingers and used the items on hand.

 Number 3, man made - shoes and Number 4, blue - jeans.

When I got the sketch on my computer to resize and post here I found that the shoes and socks looked pretty brown.  I didn't want to transfer again so put the sketch in Sketchbook Pro on my computer and spray painted some black over the shoes and socks.  Sort of worked, eh?  I saw that I didn't put in the foot stool so the feet are sort of floating or suspended in the air.  Maybe that was my exercising for today.  


And the real things.

i love jigsaw puzzles, find them relaxing and thankfully havent had any with m missing pieces

Maybe the feet are resting above the words. lol Nice job even without the foot rest.

Jennifer Rose, yes, we always just work the puzzle without a missing piece. Makes it harder if you don't remember which is missing. Ha. With kids there were pieces missing.

Joan, my feet are usually resting. Ha. Funny how you don't notice something until you take a photo or the painting/sketch rests. I try to take a photo or look in a mirror at paintings as I go along.

Jo your sketch of the jeans and shoes made me smile...great sketch with modern technology. As for the jig saw puzzles I used to do them every winter. Somewhere along the line gave them up but this past January my brother bought me one and I set it up and worked on it for several weeks. Lots of fun. Have a great week. Hugs!

Thanks, Debbie, I try digi every once in a while. I try to keep it sketchy. Yep, I need a new puzzle. Hugs back at ya.

Your suspended leg exercise sketch made me laugh - Not the way you sketched, but just your thought process.

Bag Blog, ha! I try to simplify and looks like I left out something pretty important.
