These are just some pages out of my sketchbook as of lately. I first described about it on my September 11th post "A little Sketchy". It is one of the many things I'm doing for my class. We draw still life's in class, but are to keep a sketchbook. She wanted us to always have a pencil in the drawing. That was just because she ran into so many students saying I can't think of anything to draw. So basically you can draw anything as long as there is a pencil in it, or it can be the main subject. I've decided drawing really isn't my thing, I'm just ok at it. Painting is the thing that does it for me. I love the application, making and painting colors and thinking up an interesting subject for the composition. Unfortunately, the two go hand and hand most of the time. Unless you're an abstract artist and I'm not. So, I will plug along and try to refine my drawing skills until I am comfortable with the process. I already have picked up things that have been very beneficial to my craft, so it has been positive. It's just not in my comfort zone.
