Sketchbook Sunday - December 16

Here's what my foreshortening assignment looks like right now. It will hopefully go in the mail this week.

And a page from my sketchbook. A quick sketch of a rodeo photo and some experimenting with how to do a black background behind the fur and whiskers of my mom's cat that may be my next drawing. I've always despised drawing light hair against a darker background.

Sketchbook Sunday - December 9

I worked more than usual again this week, but I still made some good progress on my assignment. Right arm, face, and torso are close to finished.

And a close-up of a horse's face that I did a quick sketch of.

Sketchbook Sunday - December 2

You won't be seeing any actual drawings that I'm working on for a little while. I've decided to take a little break after the last two projects. I'll probably start up again after Christmas.

In the meantime though, I'll still be working on my Art Instruction Schools lessons. Here's the current state of the assignment for the foreshortening lesson:
The hand and arm on the left are close to finished. The rest is just shadows and highlights blocked in.

And a sketch I did of my mom's cat, Bummer. She keeps nagging me to draw him for her. The black patch is just a test to see how he'd look against a dark background. With the white fur on his chin, I'm thinking that's what I'll have to do even though I don't look forward to it.

Bid on my photo and support our wounded veterans

I donated an 8x10 print of my draft horse photo...

... for auction to support Atlanta Horses for Heroes, an organization that provides equine-assisted therapy to wounded veterans.

Go bid on it and many other great items on the Draft Horse Owners of Georgia fundraiser page.

The auction ends Monday, Dec. 3, so hurry!
