A friend of my husbands uploaded some pictures from Afghanistan. This one in particular captured my heart. It didn't really occur to me why until I started sketching.
These two could easily be my girls. I have one that is always smiling and being friendly while the other is much more quiet and serious. It is funny how we attach our experiences to the images we see. Sometimes we don't completely realize how much.
I don't even know if these are sisters, but in my mind they were. I don't know if they talked to the soldiers that were taking their pictures, but in my mind, the older one started jabbering while the younger one tagged along listening quietly. I can't tell you if I was more captured by the photo or the story I concocted while I sketched.
I like the general look of this sketch. I think the composition holds together pretty well. This might be worth drawing up on nice paper.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
