Tequila – day 80

Today I tried layering watercolor paint. It was a fun exercise but I need more practice.

Silver teapot – day 78

   I haven’t been posting my daily sketch because I’ve been feeling very self conscious. I decided to upload this anyway as a way to, hopefully, silence the critic. I’ve been practicing shading with black watercolor, as per an exercise from the book Urban Watercolor Sketching. I’m so new at this and it feels awkward…

Apple impaled on fence – day  74

I was so not feeling this when I sketched it yesterday. Looking at it today I feel a little better. I fear I am losing that precious “beginner’s mind.” And now the Criric is creeping in.

Owls in a tree – Days 71, 72, 73

I tried an exercise from a craft magazine we have here at the library. I honestly don’t know what magazine it was and I am very sorry about that because it would be nice to reference it. If I can find it again I’ll update this post. For the exercise I first panted on the…

Olympus XA – day 70

I decided to sketch my Olympus XA – then when I pulled it out of the closet I couldn’t help but put the leather strap around my wrist so I sketched the tiny camera in the palm of my hand. Now I want to put film in it and shoot with it.

The notebook- day 69

I have been slacking on my daily drawing. Not sure if I’m losing momentum or if I am lacking time. Maybe both. I decided to do a wick watercolor sketch of my notebook.

Fox  – day 58

I’ve been thinking a lot today about my little fox so I thought I’d try drawing one. I don’t know if this is my fox but it’s a fox. I think. Also: foxes are adorable. ‪

Afga Shur Shot – day 57

I decided that sketching my cameras was a good idea when I’ve run out of ideas. Here is an old Agfa Shur Shot that is pretty much useless except for decorating my fireplace mantle. I tried mixing paint and didn’t do a very good job. I need to look at a color wheel next time.

The bunny and the fox – day 56

I’ve been seeing bunnys everywhere around here, I had a conversation about foxes the other day, I am a children’s librarian and am immersed in picture books. So this fell out of my brain. I may introduce a goose who is a mean bully. Hmm. I wonder what will happen next? Also: this is my…
