Art Journaling #5

I still have to add journaling to this.

 Learned a new technique for skies and water. I think I need practice.

Quick Sketch for Paper, Paint, Pencils and Pens

This is a quick sketch of The Courtyard Stables at Arlington Court in North Devon in the UK.  

Seems I will never see it but at least I got to draw it!

This was for the website Paper, Paint, Pencils and Pens which is full of sketches 
with a different theme every other week.  Fun !

Don't I wish

Had to do a personal sketch for the journaling class I D … sure wish I looked like this!
 I do think I got the glasses right … and the messy hair.

Art Journaling #3

I collected some fonts from a library book so I can refer to them as I journal.  

Then this morning I woke up to a broken tomato plant on the front porch.  I tried to capture it as my daily entry.

Art Journaling # 2

My online class discussed the Bower bird who collects gewgaws to attract his mate.  Not sure my collection of geegaws has any good impact on my mate, but I could identify with the bird!

We were supposed to do a background and colors and then details, I did the yarn jar that has my extra-soft baby yarn.  I bought a big jar of cheese balls and Mike ate his way through it so I could have the jar.

I have a sweater in progress … can't wait to finish it for our new grand baby-to-be.
