Every Day Matters challenge #1-Draw Shoes


I have been very intrigued lately with sketch journals. I decided to start keeping one. This is my first real entry. While perusing several art and sketch blogs I found this fun list of drawing challenges. I just thought it seemed like a fun way to sharpen my drawing skills without overtaxing my time. Sometimes I take drawing way to seriously. This sketch took me about 15 minutes to do. Click on it to take a closer look.

Great idea. I like your shoes.

Rachel said...

I like it! I wish I could sketch like that!

kristina said...

That is so encouraging. I want to do it too. (The sketches, not the journal)

Bethany said...

Oh, that does sound like fun. :)

You are exactly the inspiration I need to get going with pencil and paper again! Thanks!

Are you going to try for weekly, daily, or just whenever you get a chance do the next one? Sounds like Kristina is going for daily, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to keep up with that!

Priscilla said...

Daily is just not practical for me. Hopefully at least weekly. Maybe more.

This is so cool Pricilla ~~~ I'm hooked on a sketch book now too. Trying to always come up with a large painting was getting me down... so now I've been doing quick sketches and it's a lot more fun....
Love your shoes and socks.... They look totally comfy and warm.... Great job and I will be looking forward to many more of your entries.

LOL:Wanda

Really nice sketch. And of course your snap also. Sketching is really fun but I don't know sketching..
