More January Sketches

I played catch up a few times during the month and created more than one sketch in a day — I wanted to end the month with the equivalent of one sketch for each day. Here are the next few (click on an image for a larger view):

“Quote” was the prompt for the 13th and I like Beverly’s blunt take on giving up:

I used a photograph of Cooper to create a sketch for the prompt “Pet” on the 14th. Here’s the original photo taken on the 12th

and the sketch.

“Craving” led me to sketch some blooms.

I think my sketch is appropriately “Ridiculous” for the 16th.

I made up for not sketching on the 17th with this sketch.

More to come very soon.

Web Site Fixed

Several important features of my web site have been broken for quite some time.  Getting it fixed finally rose to the top of the list. During the fixing process I also had many other changes made to the site — all with an intent to make it function easily and be more user friendly. I hope you will take a tour of the site and let me know what you think.

Now I can’t wait to share a bit of what has been happening in my corner of the world since the new year. I committed to taking a challenge of creating one sketch each day during the month of January. I blogged about that here and here. I’m please to say that I followed through on that promise to myself. Here are the next five sketches that I did. Many of the sketches I created were inspired by a word prompt that was supplied by Sketchbook Skool. You can see that the sketch below was a result of the prompt ‘place.’ Click on images for a larger view.

This sketch was inspired by a lovely flower arrangement I had.

And here’s ‘breakfast.’

This photograph was taken on January 2nd. It’s a bit blurred but I couldn’t resist trying a sketch.

Not bad for someone who thinks she can’t do portraiture.

Here is my sketch for the prompt ‘resolve.’

Many things have happened since this sketch was done and I will be sharing highlights with you in the days to come. It’s nice to be back. I hope you’ll stay tuned and that you’ll share your thoughts with me.
