I thought I would start sharing what I have in my sketchbook each week. The following are from the past week. I often practice using reference photos from the internet or in magazines. The first here is done in oil pastels. I haven't used them much before so this will take a lot more trial and error.
Barn from reference photo, pencil.
Farm truck from reference photo, pencil.
Chickadee bird from Birds and Blooms magazine, I also did a painting from this that is listed on my Etsy. Pencil.
Orange from ref. photo, pencil.
Victorian house from ref. photo, pencil drawing.
I will be posting more sketches and drawings as I finish them each week.
