Detail of a Archimedes, Hand and Gear - Sunday Sketches

I have not burnt out my desire to draw hands yet.  Here is a detail of one I finished this past week.  I used charcoal, pencil, white charcoal, and blended white and sanguine conte to create layers of greys, whites, soft pinks and blues in this drawing.

Very cool close up and angle on this one.
I seriously need to make some attempts at focusing on the different parts of the body I struggle with sketching. Hands and mouths are my toughest areas. You're so inspiring. :)

Thank you for joining in SS each week. Hugs

bird watching and staying home for the summer

Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home. In the meantime, I have been pretty productive with my 100 Self Portraits project. Watching the birds that come to the bird feeders has been my daily dose of joy. fledgling House Finch  Chestnut- backed Chickadee Dark-Eyed Oregon Junco Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home.

Fake Journal, raincoat, letters to antigone

fake journal 2012 I love blog hopping which is how I found Roz's IFJM blog.  For the month of April, participants keep a fake journal that is outside of their regular visual journal . My mind started leaping with ideas. In the next few weeks, you'll see posts titled "Fake Journal" on my blog. I dug up this old journal that I had refused to throw away 'cuz I knew some day it would have a purpose. For the cover, I collaged one of my failed paintings and wrote a short message. I've been carting it around with me since 2008, from Japan to Mexico to California and now Washington. fake journal page one Journal : 8.25 x 5.5 notebook with kraft paper pages and blue ballpoint pen Letters to Antigone Cover : 4 x 6 140# watercolor paper, line drawing with black micron pen, monoprint tissue paper collaged onto drawing with pieces ripped off.

summer bicycle camping
