Catching up a little

I have finally scanned some of the sketches I did last month on a trip to Orlando, FL. These were my first sketches in many years...so I will also include a couple flash backs as well. The first is a quick ink sketch I drew while waiting for a colleague to join me for breakfast. I was sitting in the atrium of the hotel and I looked up to see 14 floors of balconies that facinated me...


I drew this in my Moleskine sketch book and added some watercolor afterwards. I was trying to capture a wash like affect sort of like this sketch I did in highschool...


Another sketch here of the stopwatch on the table in the restaurant where we had lunch...


Again this was done in my Moleskine adding watercolor afterwards...


Right now I have just returned from a few days down at the Folly (what we affectionately call our weekend/retirement place). It is located in a small town on the Potomac River. It has been pretty well forgotten for the last 50 years. I had a little time to sketch and decided to try one of the EDM(#3) chalenges to draw a wallet, purse, or bag.


Later this weekend I will try to get some of the other sketches posted as well.

Hey, I was just surfing around and found your blog. I like what you have here. I have a site that show you how to be debt free and other personal finance issuses. Check it out if you have some time.

Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!

These new drawings are wonderful! The backpack is especially good, and the energy of these jumps out! Keep going!

And to block your site from blogspam, go to settings and turn on "word verification." Helps a lot!

Zeke -- wonderful work, and it looks like you've jumped right in! You'll find the EDM group very supportive and helpful, and also that the weekly challenges are a great way to get you drawing, even when you don't particularly feel like it, and especially when you look around and think there's nothing to draw! :-)
