Shadows, Pretty Baby, and EDM

I finally was able to get a couple of the hubster's newly made Adirondacks into the sun around 3 pm yesterday and now have the shadows as I want them. The shadows in the original attempt were longer; I'm guessing it was closer to 5 pm. And while on the topic of shadows, I must thank Maer for all her help in identifying the location of the light source (in this case the sun) and making every shadow is in tune with that source.

The hubster and I went to my son's to visit last evening and I couldn't resist getting a new picture of the latest member of my girl tribe.

She is such a sweet, happy baby.

And last, but not least, my latest EDM - #217 - an umbrella. I'm afraid it is quite messy. Sometimes ink is not the best thing for me. I forget to be careful until it dries and smear it. I've tried making it a striped umbrella to cover up the sloppiness. I am not sure I've succeeded.

Miss 8 and Miss 3 will be here shortly to spend the day with us while their Mom is working. I don't know for sure what we will be doing, but there is bound to be some art involved. We are going to the post office to mail the Inktense pencils to Tracy and then making a visit to our small local library branch. It is sure to be a busy, fun day.

I sure hope you have a busy, fun day as well!



  1. i like messy, vicki. you drawing has got energy and spontaneity and full of character.

  2. Love the umbrella Vicki - have you seen Quentin Blake's illustrations (he did a lot of Roald Dahl books)? Your sketch reminded me of his energetic style.

  3. Can't get enough of your pictures Vicki =) Her eyes are gorgeous!
