Sketch I did last night… XE3EP is my name in Russian, and how I sign my paintings.
I’m working on 3 big paintings, one is 97% done. I’m looking forward to sharing it this coming week. ❤
I know I said I wouldn’t be back until later in the month, but it’s so hard to stay away! Just pretend you didn’t really see me, because I really won’t have any more time this week… Still busy painting away! I had to put up this sketch, because as summer vacation draws ever nearer, I’m filled with greater and greater dread. Oh yes, summer IS coming.
p.s. I added some filters post-scan just for fun.
Okay, so it’s barely still Monday here…. but it’s not midnight yet, so that’s all that matters! Above is a sketch I just did tonight while waiting for my kids to fall asleep. I think she’s in a drug-addled haze… I would say child-addled daze, but that leaves less to my imagination.
I’ve been thinking about the 5k Zombie Run that I’m doing later this summer…
which explains this…
Hope to be back Wednesday or Thursday! It’s a busy week of painting!
I did this sketch Saturday night while hanging out in bed and watching a show – whew, the wild life I live! I’m only posting the one sketch, as I’m caring for my daughter today, who has had incredibly high fevers for 5 days. Heading to the doctor soon…
Thursday, I went to the Open House for my new show at Shoreline City Hall. I’d like to say we had a huge turn out, but most people I know are still at work at 5pm, and not so close to Shoreline either. 😦 But… I had a good time anyway, and it was great to see my work up on the walls! Here’s some of the work. It’s up until the end of July.
There was a small piece in The Weekly Herald (05/25/12) about our show, and they printed one of my paintings for the article. It was quite a surprise!
Something that is sketchy can also be described as incomplete, fragmentary, vague, imprecise, imperfect, hurried, and hasty. All those things could describe my various sketchbooks too. I often draw when I’m half asleep and totally depleted from my day.
I love looking at artists’ sketchbooks, even when they aren’t fancy, but just fragments of ideas captured on paper. So, I’ve decided to try, once a week, to share some sketches from my books. I hope you enjoy them!
If you are looking for an interesting book on artists and their sketchbooks, check out An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers by Danny Gregory. Love this book!
Thanks for stopping by!
