Sketchbook Sunday








My is sketchbook is always on hand even early in the morning.  This simple teabag was such a pretty colour  (some kind of flower and fruit mix) that I was tempted to make a little watercolour sketch.
Perhaps I'll have a go painting with the tea next time!






This man was enjoying an 'aperitivo' outside a bar....but the big terracotta vase was in my way.  I did think of putting a dog there instead, but I'm not very good at dogs.  The big vases should have plants or a bush of some kind but sadly there was only a few weeds and lots of cigarette butt ends.


I've also been practicing some figure drawing using http://artists.pixelovely.com/
A useful site that gives you the choice of many poses, faces, hands and feet.....better than watching TV in the evening!

Here are some more.

Gosh, you made the tea bag look very scrummy. Will make a note of the figure site. Thanks for that.

Good to see your post again!. You always do wonderful work and thanks for the heads up on the figure drawing website.

Fabulous figure sketches Cathy. I must bookmark that site for whenever I start adding figures to my own sketches, which is still a scary thought for me!

And thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I just recently decided to be brave and make it public so was pleasantly startled to find I'd been found :o)
