Two new sketches as we get ready for a north east snow storm. The one sketch is of a cat who was enjoying a drink today from our birdbath and the other is a furniture study of a kitchen chair. I also recently went down to New Brunswick to pick up my watercolors that were in an exhibition. I've hung two of them up to enjoy and remind myself of summer days.
My brother's coming back home today to stay for the three day weekend. I haven't seen him since he took a Christmas vacation with his girlfriend to Hawaii. He's bringing me back some cool stuff like a really nice ukulele and some Hawaiian shirts. Hawaii would be really nice right about now...stay safe in the storm everyone.
Just enjoy the act of drawing itself and you'll get good at it. Enjoy everyone!
I picked up my old sketchbook tonight and started doing some new sketches in it. It's a sketchbook that my brother gave me back in 2014 as a gift and I have used it off and on since then. It's funny to see how my inspirations and style has shifted in the past 4 years. I used to draw really fast, which appears much more sketchy than my current sketches. I also used to draw from my imagination a lot.
My current sketches are all from life and the world around me. I still draw pretty quickly, but it's not as wild as my style back in 2014. It's an interesting comparison and it brought back a lot of memories. I have some old notes in there also, some made me sad and some made me smile. I'll start using this sketchbook more often and I used it tonight to draw small portrait sketches of my family.
