Two Journals

I’ve had a large sketchbook since 2010, the summer I spent on Bailey Island.  Much of what’s in there is not worth posting, but I did two sketches recently that I knew wouldn’t fit in the little journal I have in my purse so I pulled the big one out and like having all that space to fill.  Faces are incredibly fun to sketch.  It’s much easier to see what has gone wrong while your sketching eyes and noses than when you’re just drawing buildings – which seem to hide the mistakes.

I need to be looking for some very hard charcoal sticks, and will appreciate any suggestions on what works and what doesn’t.

The Rose Dawson sketch is my representation of one off the “images” on the Internet.  For fun, and because it was on one of the “plex” channels, I listened to the movie while I drew this.

The other sketch is simply something from one of my learn-to-draw books.  Both of these are freehand, and differ quite a bit from the originals. But both were good learning experiences, and part of my commitment to sketch or paint every day.
