Dinner time

Even when I sit down to quickly sketch a mundane domestic moment, I’m learning something. Hopefully, a few months down the line, what I’ve learned will be fully integrated. This is a journey, and having this blog is keeping me on a path.


Seashells, collected from various places, in one of the pieces from my McCoy collection. Not sure what it would have been used for. And it is rather an odd thing, but I like it. And the shells look pretty in it. Though that may not come across here. Seashells have a delicate appearance, and at the same time are hard as rock.

Fiddling around

Spent much of today at the MacLeod curling bonspiel which includes nonstop Scots music and dancing by local musicians and dancers from age 5 to 75. I decided to try my hand at quick sketches of some of them. When you haven’t drawn people in a while, your eye/hand gets rusty.
