I think it turned out rather well. (NaNoWriMo? I don’t know what you’re talking about.)

from art class

This isn’t Inktober, it’s just some studies I did for barnacles that are in my current art class project.

Yes, I am still writing. I find I do better overall when I don’t talk about it.

Fall grass

This a new version of a sketch I did earlier this fall while I was playing golf, waiting for the group ahead of me to tee off. I was trying to clean up the lines and such, but it wound up looking pretty much like the original :p

Clearly I’m not going to be posting every day. I’ve done other sketches but none of them good enough to post.

This is from last night. I had oysters on my mind.

Crow at Lunch

I’m going to have a try at Inktober this year. Sketching and inking are not my strong suits; I much prefer working with big areas of color or big areas of light and dark. And I’m out of practice. Hopefully I’ll get better as the month goes on. I’m not likely to post every day–for one thing, I already missed yesterday–but maybe every other day will be do-able.

First attempt: one of the crows munching on late fall insects this morning. I’m not happy with the overall shape; it looks more like a pigeon than a crow. It’s ballpoint pen on post-it note.

Our instructor had us start this term working on portraits. I used to do pencil portraits, but I’ve only attempted one previous painting. So I’m pretty pleased with this version of daughter.
