Start Small

Had trouble getting started today at the “stitch (or sketch) and b___h” get together. My fellow sketcher’s advice was to “start small, draw the candles.” It was good advice. The candles were on a remarkable, intricate and unusual tablecloth.


Then I quickly tackled the big stuff in the next room, while enjoying Babs pumpkin loaf.

Deja vu

Revisited subjects, much room for improvement. In fact, earlier drawings were better. Hand sore after painting today (walls, not paper) — not conducive to pencil work.

Last Batch

One last batch of Scottish-style shortbread, until next December (it’s a traditional, seasonal thing for me). The shortbread came out a nice golden colour, but this sketch has turned out rather heavy and grey, much like the recent weather.
