Day 28: One More Sketch

Well, I kind of dropped the ball on the 27th. Talk about tripping at the finish line (insert excuses about sinus colds and trips to the dmv). But, I managed to turn out this little sketch for the last day

Yesterday I went for coffee/advice with my friend Caroline who’s a great watercolor painter that inspire me a lot. I really admire her talent and her freestyle-style and figured I could learn a lot from her. And I did. I

I have no excuses for not starting my thing until ridiculously late. I just didn’t feel like working on anything. All of my ideas seemed stupid. So, I returned to an underway project, mentioned on Monday: the Dwarven Birth of

Day 5 – Sketch Finished

Day 4 – Sketch Continued

A Sketch… and Another Photo

So, early (and I mean early) this morning (Day 2), I made this sketch. I needed to leave the apartment this morning, but my plan was to get back before 1 and work on turning this into a finished piece

My attempt at brightening up an otherwise cold, rainy, gloomy day = Lunchtime spent with a hot cup of coffee, my sktechbook, and colored pencils. Turned out to be a little something for the three birthdays our family will celebrate
