Cat & Mouse in Charcoal

 

Hello Friends!

Today, our cat, Wampus was lying on the floor. So I did a large gestural drawing of her in charcoal on my 18″x24″ sketch pad. And with my non-dominant hand, of course.

Since it was from the back view of her, I decided to draw what I imagined she saw…a very surprised mouse! Just for fun!

And I think she approves!

 

 

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Portrait in Charcoal

 

Hello Friends!

For the last few days I worked on sketching this Filipino girl in charcoal. The photo I used is of a younger looking girl but I decided to make her a little older looking.

I had to make a few attempts but I like how she turned out. I have found that I like drawing girls and women, especially those from various Asian cultures, because of their gorgeous features.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Degas Ballerina in Charcoal

 

Hello Friends!

Today I used a charcoal pencil to draw a Degas called “Melina Darde in Adagio Passage” in my sketchbook.

I still find the human figure the most challenging thing to draw. Perhaps this is why I keep copying Degas’s drawings and paintings. I feel like I am looking through his eyes which I believe saw and drew dancers uniquely.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Degas Charcoal Drawing

 

Hello Friends!

Here is another drawing I did the other day with charcoal on drawing paper. This is my rendition of Degas’s “Seated dancer pulling up her tights.”

As always, this was a challenge to do left-handed, but fun!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

 

Degas in Charcoal and Pen & Ink

 

Hello Friends!

Here is another Degas I did in pen and ink. But I decided to draw some details and the background in charcoal. This one was a lot of fun!

Tomorrow I am going to my first post-op appointment. I think it will go well.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

 

Charcoal Left-Handed

 

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I became bored watching t.v. and reading so I got out a pad of paper, my charcoal pencils, and a print of this painting called “Paris Street; Rainy Day” by Gustave Caillebotte who was an impressionist artist in the late 1800’s.

Of course my perspeective and sizing of everything is off and I ran out of room on the far right. And I left out some background.  But it was still therapeutic.

My rotator cuff surgery went well on Monday. The sling is not very comfortable to sleep in, but I am thankful our bed adjusts to a partial sitting position so sleeping isn’t a problem.

Thanks for all of your kind thoughts and prayers, ny friends

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
