Ellie's Flowers

Contour Drawing Demo
These flowers have been around for awhile  -  going on three weeks.  I salvaged a few for my classes to do a very quick contour drawing and a fast swoop of color.  It doesn't take much to get an impression of an object.   I wish I had timed myself, so I could tell you exactly what " very quick" and "fast swoop" really mean.  Wednesday's class wanted me to set the timer for ten minutes when they started theirs, and they were finished in much less time than that.

It is dark and gray here again!  That's okay  -  I have some class promotion to do, I have a play-date with a friend, and Youngest Granddaughter will be here late this afternoon.  Of course I also have some laundry, grocery shopping, errands . . . . . I don't think I'll do that stuff.

It's Friday  -  plan a date with your sketchbook.

Very attractive sketch of these flowers. There is a very appealing simplicity about them.

Have fun with your granddaughter.

and thanks for some motivational words - I think I'll write them in my journal:
"It's Friday - plan a date with your sketchbook."

This is lovely Catherine. It shows that even with our busy schedules we can create beautiful things!

Claire and Jane - thanks! Sometimes we feel we don't have time to sketch. Maybe we think it isn't important enough? Just do it. I need to keep telling myself that.
