An exercise from Storytelling in Sketchbook Skool. This was a real departure for me. I had never drawn anything like this before. It was fun, and I’d like to do more. The drawing is based on a photo I found on the Internet.
Oh my, it has been quite a while since I last posted here. Time to get caught up and time to move on to 2015.
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. This is a copy of an idea I got from someone’s blog, maybe the Frugal Crafter (?). Unfortunately, I looked for a link to the original, and couldn’t find it.
This was fun to do, and really relaxing.
Drawn from a photo I took of Pt. Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes, CA. We visited there a few years ago, and joked that this would be the location of our family compound. You know, like the Kennedy compound in Massachusetts. We’d be perched above the beautiful Pacific Ocean watching the whales migrate and the Dolphins playing in the surf.
Back to reality…the lighthouse is a bit wonky, but I like the cliffs and the shoreline. I’m trying to be a bit less detail oriented in my sketches, but as they say, practice makes perfect (well at least it shows improvement over time.) I’ve got a long way to go.
