The brown "tail" behind him is a dried leaf.
I am finally getting back into the sketchbook that I originally dedicated to the EDM challenges. I actually wrote each of the challenges in order in it. Here is my attempt at #18 "view from a window".
This was drawn using a black Staedtler Triplus fineliner.
I also tried to sketch my great niece whose photo I posted last week. I think it looks a bit like her, but I really need to practice more.
I also wanted to show you the beautiful card I received in the mail from my online arty friend, Alex. It is absolutely beautiful. If you don't know Alex, you should definitely pay him a visit and add him to your list of favorite blogs.
I so love getting art in the mail. I also have an online friend in Las Vegas who sent me a lovely package of watercolor magazines of which she had duplicates. She doesn't have a blog or I would give you a link to it. I truly have some wonderful friends here.
I have a busy day today and can't wait to get started. I need to have a bit of breakfast, get on the treadmill, shower, grocery shop, check out the Zumba class at Sarah Vaughn's School of Dance, and I have my first three hour watercolor class in Jackson tonight. I am anxious in a good way, but quite nervous because of my lack of knowledge and/or skill in watercolor. Of course, why else would I pay for lessons??
I can't wait to tell you all about it tomorrow!
