Thanks, KathyS.  Actually, with your busy schedule, the sketch book would work if you kept it close at hand.  Great when you only have a few minutes here and there.

Thanks, Val.  Little crock due in four months.

Got some more sketch practice today.  This is Dennis's army boot.  I think I made the bottom a bit too fat.  Hope your foot didn't really fill all that space, Dennis.



I like doing the watercolor washes.

Yoohoo, anybody home.  I posted the army boot sketch two days ago and no one commented.

So good, you don't know what to say???  So bad, you are afraid to say it???

 :2funny: You are so cute, Mea. Do you know how many times I have thought and wondered the exact same thing about one of my posts? You actually have the courage to ask!  :clap:

I think your boot is great! I like that you added the color wash too. I want to branch out to color washes as well.

Thought... As long as you are sketching and practicing, what if you were to try a little pen and ink???  :whistle:  I know, I know... You are intimidated by pen and ink.  :o I personally think you will LOVE it once you try it. Get a couple Micron pens. They are easy to control for learning. Just a thought  ;)

Thanks, kathy s.  I bought Micron pens a year or more ago and have not used them  I am smitten right now with mechanical pencils  Maybe that it a way in.

As for posts not being responded to, I think my problem is that often I am the only one online because of my time zone.  So I think there is a flood of new stuff first thing in the morning in other parts of the world, so mine gets lost.

No problem, I'm bold.  I'll just remind people of it!
