Haiku My Heart: Sketching
With a pen in hand
I sketch and play with delight
Brush, paint, ink equals fun!
I've been really enjoying my Sketchbookery class with Mary Ann Moss. These are some of my sketches from last week.
This one was copied from a sketch of a buzzard in an old book I purchased at an antique store called Merry Mac's (see their label below) that dates back to the 1880's. It's called "The Boy's Own Book of Natural History" by the Rev. J.G. Wood.
The owl drawings below are from a book called "20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things From Nature" by Eloise Renouf.
My first artistic addiction was beading and making jewellery, which I started doing in the summer of 2007. Since then, my artistic obsession has grown to include art journaling. Here in this blog, I write about my own and other people's creations and anything else that tweaks my fancy.
