Drawing Practice

Something I’ve always wanted to be able to do is draw.

Ever since my semester of Drawing for Illustration ended in early May, I have been practicing. Artists always say, practice practice practice!

I actually started this idea while we were on vacation in Vegas.

I was inspired by the cool bench and chair in our hotel room.

I’ve just been going back to the basics – pencil drawing everyday objects, trying to capture the shapes, and get the lighting and shading just right.

I had fun illustrating another favorite quote, which I framed with a gothic looking mirror.

I’ve been slowly working on a page full of thumbnails of flowers from our garden that I’m calling a Flower A Day. This one is a work in progress, so you can see I have faint outlines of the next three flowers to work on, and the rest of the page planned.

I would love to make time to do one sketch every day. It’s a very rewarding, gratifying skill to learn!

  3. Great job on the pencil drawings, Terri! I like your flower-a-day project… way to keep things moving, creatively! I’m taking my journal with me to Cancun, and a bunch of supplies, of course!
