Va piano

Yes, I did sketch yesterday - i just didn't post...
It was a wonderfully sunny day, and I did spend some time sketching people sitting outside having dinner. Apart from enjoying the drawing time, one of the ladies I sketched came over and we got to talk. So: a beautifuly spring day, time for art and making new friends the same time - what more can you ask for!

Daisy - some quck sketches

Some of you might remember Daisy, my sister's dog.
Today she was my - not really willing - subject for some very (!) quick sketches. She was watching the kids play, and couldn't hold still for more than a few seconds. So for me these sketches were all about overservation and memory... and not expecting too much from such a quick drawing session.

La Cafetière

When it comes to coffee I just love my Nespresso machine - but sometimes I prefer the Cafetière or French Press. Different kind of coffee, and definitely a great subject to draw...

Memories of Majorca

Today's sketch was inspired by a photo I took on Majorca - bringing back memories of warm sun and strolls on the beach...

More Movie Sketches

Because I enjoyed drawing faces from a movie yesterday - I did the same today for my 12th sketch in my '30 Days of Daily Sketching' challenge.

The first face was done by drawing the contours blind, that is not looking at the sketch but only at the subject. Not surprisingly the result is quite... strange. I guess I could pretend I wanted to draw a caricature of the actor... ? For the two smaller ones I also tried to keep my eyes on the screen but allowed myself to peek at the sketch and adjust the drawings.

Movie Sketches

Day 11 of my '30 Days of Daily Sketching' challenge - trying to draw faces while watching a movie.
Of course I was drawing the actors, but they were not too helpful and insisted on moving... So don't expect to recognize anybody...

Easter Bloom

First of all: Happy Easter!

These lovely flowers just begged to be sketched for my 10th piece in the  '30 Days of Daily Sketching' challenge.
Another experiment regarding the approach - I started out with watercolors and then added some lines with colored pencils and a bit of pen lines.


One third of my challenge is already done! - Now I need some good ideas for what to sketch for the next two thirds!
