Sunday Sketches

I’m still enjoying Carla Sonheim’s Drawing Lab so for this week’s Sunday Sketches I drew a little imaginary animal on some junk mail, adding gesso and watercolor. This was done on a page from a Serena & Lily catalog. I gessoed up a few pages so I’d have a few on hand. Carla will be having some online classes in August and I’d love to take one. I’ll have to wait and see.

    This is one of my most favorite books… ever!

    I love your imaginary animal (on junk mail!) – so, so cool 🙂

    Wow. This is so inspiring. I want to go open my book and do something. Good news to hear that there will be an online class. I will check it out.

    I really love this little guy. He looks like your interpretation of the Target dog!

    I am really intrigued with your gesso and watercolor on a catalog page. Was the original catalog page thick paper? I particularly love how you got his shadow underneath him. Really wonderful subtle shading.

      It was a home decor catalog so the paper was better quality than some catalogs but still not very thick. About like a good magazine. I gessoed it thinly before painting and that gave it a little more thickness. The black is Scribe All pencil. I don’t think I mentioned that. Love those.

        No, you didn’t mention the Scribe All pencil. I’m going to check out the book (and the pencil!). I’ve been marinating over a self-portrait book for a while (drawing faces, especially my own, gives me the heebies). I want to do some of the suggested exercises in it, and then Ms. Sonheim’s book will be next. 🙂

          Let me know if you like the portrait book when you get it. I can always use more help with those.

    Love your imaginary animal. I have her book and have enjoyed reading it. You’ve inspired me to actually start doing it! 🙂 Nan

    So cute! He looks like he’d have a waggily tail. Or like he would make a nice squeaky toy. Lol.
