A week of sketches!

I am good at drawing on a daily basis.  I am not good at posting.  I am going to run through a week of sketches.  These are not all of them…just some!

Sketchbook Skool is still in session but coming to a close.  Miguel Herranz is one of the instructors.  He talked about spiral drawing.  The idea to more or less start from the center of the page or to the side and work your drawing out until you fill the page.  This is something I don’t normally do.  I do like filling up the whole page.  So it is something that I will come back to time and again.


Two more homework assignments for Miguel’s  session on Sketchbook Skool.  The first is another spiral drawing.  I started with the Trader Joes Ground Cumin.

Here is the digital version of the same sketch in Paper 53.

  1. We don’t sleep much, that’s how! I love your sketches! I admire you being able to do assignments. I don’t think I could do that. Your stuff is always cool to look at. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
