A sketch a day – Days 37-40

Day 37.   It will be a long time until I’m confident making my own sketches, though I intend to keep practicing  –  a picture was my inspiration for this.  Gouche water paints.

Day 38.  I tried a simple idea of water, mountains and sky – again with the gouache paint..  others may find this easy but it took quite a while to achieve.

Day 39.  A selected part from a picture, using Faber Castell  watercolour pencils

Day 40. lemons from our tree, imagined butterfly.  Lately my photos are showing a blue background, which must be due to the daylight.  I don’t know how to fix that yet.

  1. Your sketches are looking more and more professional! I love your lemons!

    • Thanks Queenie. I’m light years away from being professional but I enjoy playing. The blue tac is never far from my hand.
      Lemons are a good models, they never complain.

  2. You seem to be doing very well Maureen, your inspiration is working a treat 🙂 x

    • Thanks Barbara. some things seem to work, others not so much but I’m happy to try.

  3. I can see the growth that’s happening in your drawings since you began showing us this series. Guess that means there’s a reason to practice – who knew?

    • The practise certainly has done a lot for me. I’ll have to keep it up.

  4. What beautiful flowers – a nice grouping framed and hung together. =) The landscape reminds me of my desert home in Arizona.

    • Thanks for the kind words Susan- I’m happy you like them.
