Earlier in the day, I had a bunch of art supplies in the living room trying a set up of my own using the hubsters bottle of wine and an apple. First I outlined it in pencil, then I tried to add color using the Caran d' Ache wax crayons, and finally added a layer of oil pastels. I like the intense colors, but am not overly happy with it otherwise. To top it off, I had all that "stuff" in the living room when Adam and Jena arrived with Miss Z. Talk about in my own world, when I first looked out and saw a vehicle in the driveway, I thought "meter reader".
While I was taking the photos of my art for this post, I also had to fiddle a bit with the self portrait sketch. I decided the jaw line needed some work, so I made some adjustments and here is what "I" look like now.

I went to Ella Sharp in the morning yesterday for the life drawing class and was able to get one quick sketch
then tried another pose using some small, lovely watercolor thingies (I can't for the life of me remember what they were called or who made them, but maybe you can tell me. In the photo below, they are circled in red.) and definitely need more practice as it is a mess.

Anyway, here is my sketch using them
|This is sketched of Colourfix Suede paper.|
And the final life drawing attempt in pencil on sketch paper
I am hearing some "talking" in the guest room where Miss Z spent the night and haven't had my second cup of coffee yet. I'd better run. I will definitely be around to see what you've been up to later.
