A picture a day, day 8: Red knitting

010807-knitting.jpgRed Knitting (no. 8): colored pencil

I am knitting a bright red mohair scarf. Hopefully I'll finish it before winter, such as it is, ends.

I have come to the conclusion that I can't use the scanner for scanning these drawings. It's fine for photographs but seems to choke on artwork. So, I'm going to have to photograph the picture the next day (since I am usually drawing in the evening, after the day's work is done.)

I am much more comfortable in black and white than in color. I need to make a color chart of the pencils I have. The only drawback of graphite is that it gets all over the hands.

A picture a day, day 5: Cell phone

To loosen up after yesterday's broccoli, which took about 2 hours, and because I was busy today, I just decided to do a doodle-like sketch of my cell phone, an object I can't do without but which I sometimes dread, like my computers. Done with a 3-color gel pen (red, blue, black) in about 10 minutes.
