two drawings today!

I am so thrilled with the new sketchbooks that I went outside at noon today and drew what I could see. I even pushed a wheeled office chair out into the parking lot so as to have a place to sit and sketch!! I must say that the old office buildings look better on paper than they do when one faces them to enter within...



Then, of course, I was ready to draw when I got home. This week's challenge is the "Grouping" and I had tried to draw my porcelain several more unsuccessful times. This evening was yet another go and finally, I am pleased with the sketch. I'm not sure what the difference is, but I am happy with it and will continue on the theme as I can since it was rather a nice challenge. And now, off to bed so as to work again tomorrow and have some energy left over for drawing! The new sketchbook shall be with me, of course...

BOTH of these are so artistically done! Beautiful lines and perspective on your buildings .. and again -- your shading on your porcelin ... AWESOME!

The new sketchbook has brought out some excitement and then some! These are really nice pieces, and the moleskine's creamy background is a great background for your etchy-looking sketches!

I can see that the moleskine has inspired you, but the other drawing on you blog are wonderful too! Jean

Those are really cool. I love the shadows. I haven't learned to do that yet, and it makes so much difference.

Clearly you and the moleskines are getting along famously!

I have enjoyed all of your solutions to this challenge. Obviously the topic suits ya. Your description (below) of opening your moleskine was so rich with detail, I felt I was there in the room with you.
