Then one thing led to another and pretty soon I was in the small town of Ribiu, Romania and found a cute, curvy street and what was I to do?
|I'm really liking this 9 x 12 sketchbook.|
I again began this day with a visit to the Posemaniacs site. I am getting a bit frustrated with this. Perhaps it is the size of the journal I am working in. It is just 4 1/2 by 5 1/2. It is difficult to do really loose sketches holding the pencil loosely. Revelle suggested vine charcoal and larger movement and that sounds like a plan. First I have to find some vine charcoal and then I think I need a larger work surface. I am not giving up on this journal. I love it, but I think I may change it up to 60 or 90 minute sketches and see how that goes. At any rate, here is today's offering.
Despite all my wishing and hoping and hanging around the mail box, my treasures have not arrived yet. I am gnashing my teeth in anticipation and will share as soon as they arrive.
I did receive one lovely surprise last evening when I was sent this photo of the lovely Miss Z.
Meanwhile, do make time for some art and enjoy this early 2012 because you know how quickly these years are passing.
