S is for Sketches

There was a time when I sketched everyday but then life took over and my free time was used for other things. Recently, since my children are older and I have more time, I’ve been trying to get back into the habit. I find drawing very relaxing. There is something about the scratch of pencil on paper that calms my mind. In order to keep myself motivated I thought I would share some of my work. I hope you enjoy them.

(Technically these are drawings, not sketches but “d” was a long time ago and I really needed something for “s” so work with me! 😊 )

This was from a photo of my daughter when she was about six.

Another of my daughter. I love the way her velvet dress reflected the light.

This was suppose to be Lauren Bacall, but it turned out looking more like a distant cousin!

This was from a photo of my mother when she was 10, probably around 1940.
