I'm trying new challenges, pushing the limits of my experience with sketching.  I've upped the ante as it were.  This time, I've attempted to do a 15 minute sketch of a picture of Laurel.  This sketch is SEVERELY lacking, and I only used one color of colored pencil...a.k.a:  no eraser; no blending.  This one is tough, y'all.  The outcome is shoddy at best, but I'm one step closer to gaining some skills.

Well, "It's coming on Christmas; they're cutting down trees..."
We finally got a Christmas tree!  I know that some of you are agreeing that we are late to the party this year, and others of you are wondering what's the rush?

Here's our little lovely tree:


We made room for it in the corner of the living room, and I made some room for it in my sketch book:

 I think of this as a Christmas tree self-portrait.  ;) 
To repeat a theme:  having fun; playing with lines; avoiding being a slave to perfection.  I have this sketch and a charcoal finger to show for it.

It may not be for everyone, but I've been interested in playing with lines.  I'm having fun!
