Lisa of “Zeebra Designs and Destinations” is a very accomplished and talented artist and photographer. I love visiting her blog it is varied, inspirational and full of wit and wisdom.
Now her latest project is to do a pencil sketch each Thursday and she has invited other bloggers to “give it a go”.
I am not an artist, I love photography, it is quick and with digital you can take as many shots as you like, but drawing, now that takes time and concentration and careful observation.
For my first attempt I have chosen Tessa, the cute little dog we are looking after at the moment. Not easy as you just get going and she moves, 😦 but, as the saying goes ” if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”.
As you can see she is very cute and she loves cuddles, but next week I will try to find a more static subject.
These palm trees I drew way back in 2003 and I have grown rusty with not practicing. So thank you Lisa for jolting me back into action, it has been on my “must do” list for so long.
I was quite nervous about participating, it is confronting. So come on have a go I’m sure if I can do it you inspiring sketchers out there can show us what you can do…
So here goes, nervously, I am going to hit the publish button
