help, i'm drawing and i can't stop...

Somehow I've gotten the drawing bug in a serious way this time. It is all I want to do when I get some time off from work. Granted, my work situation is unusual at this time, but I have completely fallen into sketchbook-mode and have no desire to come out! Hopefully I will get beyond posting every sketch here, but I am on a crazy, crazy roll with this. Here's another of my porcelain boxes. This one is California Pottery and is a Cigarette box with two ashtrays that stow away inside. It is pink with the most glorious flower on it.




Then I tried out a different pen with a wide tip in an effort to loosen up with the drawing. It's ok, but not quite the loose effect I was going for.


Another piece in my porcelain collection that I always enjoy looking at...


And yeh, the house is falling down around me, but I prefer to go fetch veggies from the kitchen to draw...


And a look out the window before taking a wee nap...

Starr,

This is the first time I have been to your blog.
I love your sketches! I think you may have been hanging around in my house (which needs cleaning BTW, as soon as I get done drawing)when you wrote this post. Colors in your onion are Right On! Keep drawing and posting, I will keep looking!
