Ai, very cool of the coconut harvester. I have seen a few palm trees but nothing like you have! I love your multicolored hands, too. Fun.
Robin, I understand about the hands. Every once in a while I think I should look for a part time job, then I think, "What? I'm almost 80 years old." I really like the hatching on your hands and faucet. The shoe and bottom of the holder are well done, too.
Jennie Jo, I like your table stuff. Pretty multi colored bowl. I love pottery.
joe1lt, good on the watch. Pretty complicated. Interesting window with latch.
I sketched in the regular 9 x 12 sketchbook with a Micron 02 today here at my desk.
Number 2, hand
Number 3 kitchen utensil - opener
Number 4, hand position 2
Yay - some sketches I did in a waiting room apply to this list! Ink on the back side of printer paper.
1. a shoe - sandal with strange proportions
2. hand - position one. Challenge- drawn hand holding something - my thumb holding this clip board with paper for sketching
3. hand - position two
4. hand - position three
Robin - Thanks for the new list! Yay hand! more hands and show and that drain(?) (bottom of a blender?) Oh I see a pen marker holder
Joan - hooray for hand studies. Yay items on the end table. Is the Nicolls point a restaurant?
Jo - I always enjoy your ink marks for landscape. Yay bottle opener
JennieJo - Ooh the view towards the path in the trees looks so dreamy Great bowl and knife
Ai - yay - what tool does the coconut harvester person use? A long bamboo stick with something on the end? Yay look at those colourful hands
joe1lt - ooh watch
EP, you always have good perspective and unusual poses/composition. Great hatching on the hands and shoe.Thanks.
Joan, we can never compliment your figures too much. Great expressions and gestures. The landscapes are good. I like your greens and shadows. Thanks. And yes, there is always a bottle of wine. Everyday, though, we drink the box Franzia wines. The cabernet is from Chile and always good. With boxes you can drink just a glass and no air gets in so it stays good for weeks.
Jennie-jo- nice bowl——charcoal gives it a nice touch
Ai- maybe your left hand feels your longings ( hey that’s an unintended pun). Drawing with nondominant hand makes it clear how much we take our dominante hand for granted. I am glad you can still paint.....I tried playing piano but wasn’t exactly my thing, i really like the clarinet but that too takes quick fingers so I get down once a while with the digerido.
Joan- lovely plien air work, just lovely lately there is a grandiose quality to the buildings.....must be from breathing all that fresh air - that must why these are breathtaking!
Ep - yay for impromptu sketches on stuff that happens to available. Nothing like sketching to make waitting pass fast. I used to carry a little notebook and sketch in grocery line....the time goes FAST, hahah...the one of the thumb has some kind of mystique going on....I really like it but don’t know why...fun sketches.
JoC - ahhh, the wine bottle opener...I like wine but if I drink even one glass a day my digestion get cranky so I keep it down to a watered down glass every three or four days, nice set. The forefinger and thumb nails it.....nice drawing/ lame pun
Edited - add my comments about sketches posted by others.
Joan - love the sketch of people sketching (is that considered meta?) Thank you.
Jo - thank you
Robin - thank you. Turns out sketching works better in a waiting room because there is canned background music, conversation, calling out names, etc.
Here is another set of sketches. Ink, 5x8" page, with marker.
5. listening device
7. bottom of something
8. end table with items on it - a weather station on a table that used to be a bed side table.
Joe Fl , hi that is a really nice 15 minute digital thumbs up! it is hard with digital for me to not get caught up in all the doodades ...it all feels so immediate but messing up comes faster too. Glad you got to do a little somethin
Ep....nice set.... these sketches ave good solid shapes...the end table arrangement is scaled relationships good....the strokes of color are pleasing too.
7 - viewed from below - table
10-picture hanging (granddaughter-yes, she is sticking her tongue out....
12-stuff on end table
Robin - is that first hand watercolor? Hatching on hands, faucet and shoe is great. Cool pen holder. Great perspective on the both tables, chair and legs.
Joan - like the hand sketches. You have a very uncluttered end table. Cool clock. My parents had one that looked a lot like that but it was wind up. Watching the piece at the bottom turn was mesmerizing. Think all your Lucy drawing/painting is paying off . Your renditions of people are excellent. Your watercolors are also superb with strong contrast.
Jo - love how you captured the look of the scissor tail with so few lines. Like the hatching on the opener. The hand is super. Like the almost random lines showing shape.
JennieJo - cool multimedia of path Like the soft coloring on the bowl.
Ai - love seeing your reference with the painting. Your hands remind me of Robin’s old style. Using ink of any color but looking good as tones were all right. Especially like the 2 on the left. Love all the Lucy paintings.
Joe1 - nice watch and window sketches
EP -like all the line work on foot and hands. The hatching on the last one adds great dimension. Nice work on earphones, clock, etc.
