It is taking much longer to fill this sketch book but I have enjoyed it just the same as the first. However, I think I need to be done. I now need to actually do something constructive. I have a few more pages to fill and will take my time with those. I would like to try to do some ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) or Artist Trading Cards. I am not sure about selling them but that will have to be seen what I can come up with. I will get some ideas from my sketch books. In my sketch books I have used or drawn on other artists for inspiration. When I begin now, with ACEOs they will all be originals.
So for now I will post some pages from this last sketch book.On this page, the girl is copied from and advertisement if I remember correctly. I was trying to get the pose.
I enjoyed myself by drawing a few horses, I was in the mood for them for some reason.
Another thing I have enjoyed doing is Sunflowers. They are such happy flowers and a delight to draw and paint. I will be doing more of those, and bees, I love doing bees.
I also like fairies and think I will paint some of those after this. All my sketch book things were done quickly with no skill, I will have to do better when I begin again.
My naked lady got painted. I like her.
This one is an experiment in trying to get a masculine face that looks like a man. Hmmmmmm its difficult for me
I also enjoy drawing animals
Well thats just a few from this sketchbook, but I think thats enough. This really is just for my record when I print out my blogs. If someone enjoys them then that is a bonus for me.
I am sharing this with Adorned from above with thanks
Also with A Dedicated House Make it Pretty Monday
Going over to Ivy and Elephants to join those fine folks
I am also sharing with Inspire me Monday at Create with Joy
and with Inspire me Wednesday
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
