More Practice

man waiting  pencil on paper
I was very brave last week to sit and surreptitiously draw this man from life while we both waited for an oil change. Again my proportions and perspective are a bit off, but not too bad.

Random animals from a magazine pencil on paper

chickens in colored pencil

I finally found my bag of Prismacolor pencils. I really like the waxy sort of feel they have.

Some more chickens, a little better, but the cat is ugly.

random faces in color pencil

More random faces from my facebook feed. They don't really look like the pictures much tho.

fruit in color pencil

Last night I worked on this picture of fruit. It's not finished. Color pencil takes a long time, it's not as easy to smudge and blend like paint, pastels or regular pencils.  I'll probably try and finish it tonight.

Sorry I'm late but posting this to Paint Party Friday, even tho it's Saturday. Go on over and join the part, I always love to see all the cool art from around the world.


  1. Looove the roosters and the chicken. Neat use of color--some almost have a 3D effect. Lovely. xo

  2. Ooh this are all so wonderful...the man waiting for the oil change is awesome..Love all the fun faces too!! You can really see a great style emerging in all the sketches!! Good them!

  3. Great sketch pages. Good work.

  4. Love the Roosters - they are always so fun to draw...Happy PPF

  5. I love your studies, especially the second one with the animals. However, I'm also amazed at how well you were able to sketch the guy at the oil change. Blessings!

  6. Wonderful drawings. I have to say that tiny owl face is my favorite!
