Vase - Finished Drawing



Think I'll call it quits on the drawing. transfer it to canvas tomorrow, and start the painting process. Makes me nervous! ACK. No confidence have I. But I do keep on keepin' on, and that's what matters, right?

Vase - Progress 3




Today doesn't look like much progress. There were some parts of the set up that I didn't understand, couldn't 'see,' and thus messed them up, had to erase and start again. I guess that is progress. It was a good day, snowy and cold -- perfect for sitting by my little space heater and drawing. And listening to Govi and Ottmar Liebert :-)

Vase Drawing - Progress 2



Today's work. It is moving along. I'm starting to like it. I for sure like the set up. Now the question is whether or not I can capture the beauty of it, first on paper, then on canvas...

Vase Drawing - Progress



Here's the start of the new still life I'm working on. The last time I was at Mama's house in OKC, she had placed this little vase on my dresser in my old bedroom and filled it with her marigolds. She was so glad I was home to visit and so was I and we had a wonderful time. That was the last time I got to spend time with her. She died six weeks later. So I've a special attachment to this little vase.
