I've been continuing with my sketching, using ideas from EDM weekly challenges. I admit, I've been procrastinating a bit. It seems to be a greater challenge to post these. I decided tonight I was going to put them on if I had to stay up all night, so I photographed them under the "natural" track lights. I guess these bulbs are ready for Valentine's Day, they turned all of my pictures pink!
Challenge #2 - The lamp was not something I wanted to do, but I forced myself. Something about drawing a lamp didn't appeal to me.
Challenge #3-4 - I didn't think about how many folds were in my bag until I started sketching it. The mug was drawn from an odd angle and the mug itself is odd, with reliefs popping out here and there. In hindsight, I should have taken it with me when I taught bas reliefs.
The two sculptures below were done by Marina and Sierra, respectively. They were given to me for Christmas. They used a special Sculpey Ultralight clay.
Marina's shows my three children reading on the couch. Sierra's is her and Marina on the couch, reading and eating blueberries with the TV in front of them. Not bad for a five year old. Marina only helped her with the hair and with sticking some pieces together. And keeping her fiery tempered little sis from mushing the clay into a ball when she got frustrated!
