EDM Challenge #1 Draw a shoe

This is Every Day Matters Challenge number 1, Draw a Shoe.
I drew it twice because of the tiny ankle hole.
I don't know why I drew the top so tiny.

Self Portrait Marathon Part 3

I just woke up.

On June 13, Self Portrait #2 I did a computer drawing and stated I liked "real" drawing better. I traced a photo for my computer drawing and it's a personal thing for me. I didn't get the same feeling when I traced the photo. My guts weren't really in the process. I didn't feel like I was really drawing. I want to clarify that I believe that the computer is a valid tool for drawing, and it is just that, another tool such as a pencil, pen or brush.

Court House Sketches

The gardner,the security police,
in the jury waiting room,
the patio cafe.

When sketching in public places I usually sit with my back against a wall
so people can't peek from behind me.
Do you see the little picture on the left, in the box?
I was drawing the security police when this lady with a baby
walked right up to me, practically touching my sketchbook with her stomach,
SMACK DAB in front of me.
She started reading the bulletin board above my head.
I felt a little uncomfortable . . . . .well . . . .very.

SELF Portrait Marathon

Here is the entry I drew for the self portrait maration. OOOPs,
I don't think it's really a portrait. I'll do a REAL one soon.

Sketch and Paint Out

These are sketches from the NCSFA Sketch and Paint Out. There were 2 of us this time. I had a rectangle of beige on a sketch book page, painted about a month ago - for no apparent reason, This turned out to be a good back drop for the sketch of the pond, hills and houses. I also sketched a few sleeping ducks and just like people, they moved right after I started the sketch!
