still tryin'...

well, I came home this evening and took a bit of a walk since it was still daylight for a change. Daylight Savings Time makes a mighty big difference in our neck of the woods, that's for sure. And then I got onto some sketching - a third try at the porcelain devils, if you will, and it was as dis-appointin' as usual. But I was watching some mindless tv, so it wasn't too much time wasted.

I decided to change horses, er... subjects, for the time bein', and so tonite I have a blue, blue sketch of a group of ~~scissors. It was the first thing in sight when I went for "grouping" and I'm still enamored of my new Lamy Safari fountain pen that came with a blue ink cartridge. So I have recorded all the scissors in the adjacent vacinity and will have to move on if I get the notion to draw anything else.

I still don't know what I'm going for with the porcelain collection, but I'll torture myself a bit longer to see if i can figure it out.

Sweet dreams all...

These are really wonderful renderings of scissors, they would also qualify for the EDM #16 draw your favorite tool! Great job.

Wow, these are great! Scissors are difficult, with the assymetric handles and all that. You really managed to capture all the angles and curves.
