This is a sketch of my son, from last Thursday I think. It’s not quite right, the profile that is, but beginning to capture his curly hair.
I did this one while the kids were in gymnastics, attempting to draw the kimono plate pattern freehand. A protractor would come in handy here to draw the circles. Also I’m not sure if I want to attempt to draw the pattern on my panel, or try a gesso transfer. Definitely leaning toward the latter. But I do need to get started on that panel if I’m going to finish by the end of November!
And this one is a sketch of my daughter while we were at church. Someone saw that I was reading a book on Krishnamacharya and recommended that I read Acts of Faith. These sketches show that if I’m determined, I can squeeze some drawing into small blocks of time and do at least something creative every day.

I have always wanted to be able to draw in public places, but I find it very difficult to draw when someone else is looking. Good for you that you are determined to draw!
Have a nice AEDM!
Thanks Elin. It’s really hard to make myself draw everyday, and sometimes the only way to do it is to steal those little moments. I’m not as shy anymore, but that takes a while. You have to not care if people like it or not.
I find it a bit confronting to draw when other people are looking on so I am really impressed that you are getting these done… lovely work xx
