Sketch Fest!

I started the day tired, having had my sleep interrupted the night before (nothing dreadful). After work, I needed a bit of time to change frames--it was my last day there, and I had been talking with my primary attorneys about stuff like my job hunt, as well as saying goodbye to everyone.

I had hoped to do a bunch of sketches; I managed three.

I'm finding the process valuable, in a number of ways. First, trying to do something worth sharing in just an hour is a challenge. It pushes me to try different techniques.

Second, seeing the "thumbnail" as I go, on my cell phone, is surprisingly helpful--seeing a drawing or painting at a different size is like seeing it through different eyes.

Third, posting not only the finished sketch for comments on the Sketch Fest website, but also progress pictures here, where people can comment on the different stages of the work.

So I'm really glad that many of you are also enjoying the posts.  Thank you for your comments!

Thank you. I have to credit the many beautiful wildlife photos I see on LJ for some of the inspiration for things like this!
