Final January Sketches

Here are the last of the sketches I did during January. I created several on the 25th to make up for missing other days. Click on images for a larger view.

For the word prompt ‘selfie’

For the next few sketches I selected my own subjects from around the house. This pin cushion is dear to me because my friend Susan made it for me.

I had a single stem of anthurium for several weeks in January and it begged to be sketched.

Another fun evening of doodling.

Another angle on the anthurium.

The word prompt ‘landscape’ inspired this sketch.

And finally, the word prompt ‘glass’ gave me an opportunity to sketch a favorite rooster. This colorful piece is perched on my kitchen counter and always brings a smile to my face. This is my first two-page spread, a sort of break through for me. This guy just seemed to demand it.

So, that’s a wrap. I enjoyed the sketching I did in January. And though I had hoped that it would create a new habit for me, I did fall off the wagon in February. However, I will go back to sketching here and there. Meanwhile, I have fiber art that I’ve created and more fiber work in mind. I’ll keep you posted here.

    Looks like you enjoyed the sketching. I try, from time to time, but can’t seem to get into it. The rooster is fun! And the bubbles remind me of one of my favorite free-motion designs!

      I completely enjoy sketching. And yes, the habit of it is the thing. The self talk and other distractions can take the time of actually sketching. On the other hand, sketching is not my only artistic outlet and I’ve been working with fabric lately so I can’t be too hard on myself.
