"Just A Window"

by Terry Gillen
(Austin, Texas)


"Just A Window"

I am just learning to draw I love the way it clears my mind of the clutter and enables me to be totally in the moment.

I found this picture in a sketch book I bought and I had to see if I could draw it. It was fun to do.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Terry, isn't drawing the best? I love your drawing, you show good promise, please keep practicing.

A Spring Day in Okinawa

by Ellen Brown
(Sealy, Texas)

A mother and daughter enjoying the day.

A mother and daughter enjoying the day.

My mother and sister in the 1950's sitting outside on a sunny day in Okinawa. Another drawing from a photograph, this one was really hard around the eyes, nose and mouths, because the photo wasn't really clear to see them. (Of course, I have trouble with those parts anyway!) lol


artist
Note from Kerry:

You managed to portray the photo in graphite perfectly, Ellen. It doesn't matter if you couldn't see those details very well because distance makes things less distinct anyway. It only takes a couple of thoughtful strokes here and there and our imagination fills in the gaps.

Vase

So, this drawing ..which took me something like 2 weeks or so, is a still life drawing.

I'm not sure if it's supposed to be in this section....:S


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Dana!
Yes, you are in the correct section of pencil drawings. There's no need to worry about that, I can always move them to the right category.

My Thumbnail Drawings

Thumbnail Drawings

I was in a little slump with my drawing and Kerry showed us some of her thumbnail drawings, this prompted me to start drawing again. It was something I truly enjoyed.

This is my first sheet, 1" x 1" used this size because of the paper I was using already had a grid on it. Also they were all done with a #2 pencil.

***Note from Kerry;
Hi Norma! It's so great to see you back here. I have thoroughly enjoyed going through your thumbnails, they look great. It gives me so much pleasure to know I managed to inspire you back to drawing, thanks Norma.

Teddy Bear

by Nicki
(United States)


I was in the basement of my house and saw my old teddy bear lying on the ground and saw the different shapes that could make up his figure.

I decided to give it a go and I think he turned out pretty good even though the copied image isn't as good as the actual image.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Nicki
That is a terrific drawing and a wonderful keepsake. Good work!
