Luckily, when the text came in from Stockholm this morning, about a transoceanic FaceTime SketchTime session, I was almost done making my purchases at the farmers market. It has been a few weeks since I did any drawing so I was glad for the invite from my sister .
This bunch of flowers turned out to be an excellent subject for sketching.
No need for perfection. Pick up the pen, pick a flower, and just start. You may have noticed I tend to have a very wavery line when I sketch. It's not that my hand shakes, it just never knows where it's going next and this is the result.
During our session today, among other things, we discussed selecting the front seat on the bus for maximum viewing when traveling in a foreign country, the exceptional cuteness of handmade mouse dolls who sleep in matchboxes covered with knitted blankets, and the pleasure of drinking coffee from pretty cups while staring out the windows into the Swedish evening light.
Before I knew it, it was time to sign off. I am not going to try and paint these flowers. I like them just like they are.
