I slowly am getting back to normal. Coming back from an overseas trip involves lots of adjustments.First getting used to a very different world again, catching up on sleep and discovering that you have a million things to do. I was gone 23 days so I have a lot of catch up to do. I really missed my studio but haven't managed to spend too much time there yet. Too many things pulling me away.
After seeing this book on another blog, I felt like it would be fun to have. It doesn't tell you how to draw a tree but does have some nice examples along with a lot of other items from nature.
So far I tried out some mushroom and one of the trees. I think it will be fun to play with in the remaining pages of my small moleskine.
This is a face I did on my trip, I was taking the ferry back to Ireland. I needed something to pass the time.
Then I did this one as a response to my friend Claire, who had asked if I ever did women with short hair. Here is one just for you Claire.
This is an art journal page, my first in a long time. I am delighted how it turned out since it was really ugly in the beginning. Just reinforces the idea to keep at it, you don't know where the page might take you.
I decided to sign up for sketchbook skool at the last minute. I love Danny Gregory's work and all the other artists who taught in semester one. I am so glad they offered it again. Sketching is something that I really want to improve upon so this class seemed perfect. Its called Beginnings.
This is my first page. we were to draw someting that had meaning for us. Its an excellent class and you can still sign up.
