I know I must seem obsessed with Madonna since I went to the concert. I thought I was jaded, after all, I had been to big concerts before, Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, and, back in the day, Barbra Streisand in Central Park. So I was somewhat surprised that the concert has had such an effect on me. I really enjoyed it, I could have done without the pelvic thrusts and simulations of sex, but all in all, it was a great experience.
I was just settling into a nice sketching session when I was called in for my examination. This was not what I had planned, but I finished it when I got home.
EDM #199 was fun, but again, I am struggling with pen drawing. I hope I start to see some improvement soon.
This is a little local restaurant, we usually don't have to wait to be seated, but our timing was off and we were at the dinner rush. This was done looking through the window while we waited outside for a table. Finished at home with w/c
A little story about this restaurant. The owner had advertised in the local churches, supermarkets and had a sign on his door for several days that he was giving Thanksgiving dinners away for free all day Thanksgiving. He cooked 43 turkeys, and all of the fixings....he had a handful of people come in to take advantage of the opportunity. This poor guy froze as much as he could, I don't know what he did with the rest of the leftover food. You wouldn't think in these tough economic times that you would have trouble giving away a Thanksgiving dinner. It is so ironic.
This sketch represents decorations in the waiting room of a facility where my husband was having a PET scan done. I experimented with stippling for shading, and cross hatching. I put the w/c in at home, and used water soluble graphite pencils for the shadows. I am struggling with pen, but I keep at it hoping to see some improvement.
