My Passions sketch by Meera Rao
I want to sketch something everyday but there are days when my muse doesn't show up or sometimes life gets in the way! Once in a while I will check daily painters lists for ideas. 'My Passions' came about when I combined two different such lists. One listed sketch your hobby; sketch an heirloom said another . I decided to combine the two :I would sketch an heirloom and add my camera review pane around it ! I am feeling very clever and pleased :)
This sketch was done in couple of months ago and I did not post it then. I am in India now, my annual visit to take care my Mother-in-law. I am unable to post the sketches done here as google platform and microsoft PC seem to be at odds when it comes to posting photograpahs :( Blogger won't recognize crops and edits done in Windows and I can't seem to import into Picasa to do my edits there to upload to the blog!!! I hope I will find a solution soon or I will have to wait till I get back to my own computer to post my sketch book.
I am trying something new this time - using Moleskine Japanese style accordion sketchbooks in two different sizes. The smaller one that folds into 5.5x3.5" is almost full. I love how it unfolds and I can vary the width of my sketches depending on the subject and how the sketches are not in isolation but run into each other reflecting life itself. I am excited about how it feels and can't wait to post them. I hope I will know more about how to work this computer soon!!!!
