Pen & Ink
I had to laugh when I was sketching this person’s foot. I know that people get intimidated sometimes when somebody stares at their face (and draw). But this time, the person felt intimidated because I was drawing his shoe/foot. He sat one row in front of where I sat, across the aisle. He looked back twice, but not at me. And I didn’t look up either, pretending I was not really looking at his shoe. I guess he could feel that someone was studying his body part. So he moved further down, on my side of the aisle, facing me…
It’s nice to be able to join Sketchcrawl again! Sketchcrawl 12.5Â ‘Draw in your home’ is supposed to be tomorrow, 28-01, but since I have other plans for tomorrow I decided to do it today instead. These are sketches of the interior of our flat.
1. View from the study room/Nor’s office
2. Nor’s desk in the study room/office
3. Study room/office, showing bookcases and cabinets
4. The bar/coffee corner/kitchen. We love our Kitchenaid espresso machine. Nor is a fantastic barista and makes delicious cappuccino.
5. The other corner of the kitchen; also showing part of the bar and living room.
6. The living room
…unfortunately the ink from the next entry slightly shows through this page…can’t be avoided as I used the small thin papered moleskine cahier.
It was a good day, except for one thing. The figure drawing workshop I wanted to do is canceled. One of the students bailed out so suddenly, and now the teacher can’t get enough people for the class. how disappointing!!
I am suddenly very interested in mice, guinea pigs, hamster, rabbits, etc… My homework that I did last night was about the ‘woelmuis’ (don’t know the name in English…it’s a mouse). I think they are cute. I am just not sure if they can get along with the cats. Can rabbits (especialy the super size giant type) can get along with cats? Are they big enough to take care of themselves?
EDM Challenge #98: Free choice. Draw anything you like…… well a portrait then.
Everyday Matters Challenge #100: Draw/paint a landscape. Typical dutch countryside.
My G-Star captain jacket …
The clutter in my ‘studio’ (actually, I do not have a real studio…). Stacks of books (art books, graphic periodicals, biology textbook, etc.), candles, tealights, manequin, etc. etc…
Honestly, I have no idea what he is saying…I was just doodling aimlessly. This is just one of my ‘rambling sketches’. I was inspired by the fact that I have to go to my biology class this evening (first lesson). However the weather outside is not co-operating at all. It is raining hard and very windy. An umbrella will not stand a chance and I do not have a rain coat!! Phhhwwttt!
EDM Challenge #93: Draw an egg carton with or without eggs in it. Here is my version with eggs in it.
