Sketchbook Peek: Fort Washington

Despite having grown up absolutely nowhere near water, I really like lighthouses. I stood in the wind as I drew, a man nearby flying a kite far above my head as the sun started to set. A lovely day, and I’m glad I took the time to draw part of it.

(I also love national parks because I can put the stamp in my sketchbook.)

Berthe Morisot

There weren’t many female Impressionists, so Morisot’s work was new to me, but I like it.

Sketchbook Peek: Oxon Hill Farm

It was a windy and chilly April day that I visited Oxon Hill Farm, far too windy to draw the cows in the field as I’d wanted. So I took shelter in this little building and drew the old tractor they had on display along with other ancient technology.

Journal52 – Week 20

The prompt was “food with a face.” I started by drawing broccoli more or less in the style of Ballycumber the BookCrossing logo, and just kind of went from there. The final picture amuses the crap out of me.

Journal52 – Week 13

I am so pleased with myself for this one. I’d always misheard the lyrics to this song, and with a prompt like mondegreens, I knew I had to go for it. She’s even holding the ELO shield! Come on, it’s hilarious.

Journal52 – Week 11

This week’s prompt was favorite imaginary animal. I’d thought about gelflings and griffins and then looked up and saw my plush Peep collection, and decided to draw that instead.

Journal52 – Week 10

The two prompts this week were “emerge” and “what lies beneath”. I decided to incorporate both in my page, plus try out some new pens my husband gave me: Sakura Glaze. Very pretty, but the scan doesn’t do the shine justice.

Sketchbook Peek: Echo

I was at Peet’s Coffee in Falls Church, Virginia, for Draw Night with some fellow local sketchers. I wasn’t too inspired by my surroundings, but one of the others was drawing from a photograph so I decided to do so as well. This is my cat, Echo. I drew this with a Prismacolor 05 drawing pen and highlighted with colored pencils. Took about 20-30 minutes, as do most of the ink drawings I do from photographs.
