After Art Retreat #2 my sister and I did Sketchwar's Wednesdays on a somewhat inconsistent AND regular basis (not a contradiction in terms though it may seem like it). This was in an effort to keep me in the sketching mode all through the year. Since Art Retreat #3 we have been doing FaceTime SketchTime on Sundays.
Today I practiced drawing vegetables. Vegetables inspired by my friend (in my own mind only) Gregory L. Blackstock. I figure the only way I am going to get better at drawing my farmers market finds this spring and summer is to carefully observe and imitate the style of an expert until I find my own way.
My sister was drawing pretty things. Like birds.
I just kept on with the vegetables.
Until I switched to flowers.
And before you know it 2 hours was gone and I had to go and finish the laundry. Coloring in to follow.
