This one is interesting. I sketched Rachel while was lying down reading a pile of books. (She had a bit of a fever from molars moving which means we have to be careful of seizures. A little slater she went outside so she is fine. :)) I later took the sketch, which was relatively happy with and inked it, except I managed to ink a line right through the middle–stupid hands. So, this sketch is a resketch completely from memory. She kind of has a bobble head thing going(the head is at the wrong angle and too big, yet somehow it works in a weird sort of way) but all together I like the sketch.

Today I spent some time sketching as Issac moved about and built an impressive city out of the memory rocks we keep in a giant bowl by the fire place. He has all kinds of building toys but loves balancing rocks one on another and spent 45 minutes at it after playing out in the snow. Because he was moving about an building as boys do the sketch is more impression than any attempt to capture Issac as he is.

I am relatively happy with this one–not perfect but all right considering my hands hurt today.  I am really happy with the look on her face, which is the look she had.  Vrry tricky with such a small space to work with.

My hands were really hurting by the time I finished this one so I didn’t finish it completely.  The background and bottom are unfinished but it is time for me to stop so I will be able to type tomorrow.  One of the big things with having RA is knowing when to quit.

I will probably not do doodles over the weekend.   Instead I will start up again on Monday, God willing.

Once again I am not completely happy with this one–the sketch came out very different than the painting–which is fine, but I couldn’t get a good photo of the painting so it is kind of weird and missing the focus on positive and negative space and contrast that I was going for. However, I am going to go ahead and post them anyway, and force myself to continue to do so, just because I need to get over myself. I find using a small pad tricky–I am used to large spaces to work and the tiny pad and pencil/brushes that are bigger than I want aren’t helping me get the affect I am going for.
