Sketchy me…….


I’m the mad woman of on-line classes…now I’m taking a delightful class named “Art of Wild Abandonment”.  Don’t you love the title?  It is a sketching, lettering, watercolor and mixed media class being taught by Junelle Jacobsen and Christy Tomlinson.

This and the lettering class I just finished compliment each other so well….I’m loving it.

I have been avoiding “practice drawing” for some time now, this class is forcing it.  Wisely, our instructor, Junelle, started with simple shapes like radishes and is now “movin’ on up” to things a little more complicated.

So, I’ve been practicing my drawing by sketching…..radishes…..


and cupcakes…….


and today, while sitting in the back of the room…..the backs of people’s heads……


and then the Daisy part of Dandelion and Daisy……..


Guess I’ll continue to be sketchy!

Whoot! Whoot! I'm taking this class too. Today I sketched cherries and painted them, and added some letter love while I was at it! Fun Fun Fun!

I am SUPER impressed with your drawing skills. You make it look so easy and effortless. I love what you did, especially the "Radish Soup."
