What am I drawing?

April 24, 2019

I have found that I have not been taking the time to draw, so to compensate, I am drawing my lunch.  I try to do it everyday.

Here are the last 2 days.  It is my intention to add color – I usually work in colored pencil, but that is for another time.

As you can see, I got the date wrong yesterday.


Whose journal am I reading?

June 12, 2012

Queen Victoria’s journal – particularly her drawings, which I found charming. This serves as a reminder to me to Draw Something Every Day.  Not that my sketchbooks will be preserved like Queen Vickie’s are.  Just because.

Here are some samples of HRH’s work:

Referred to this site by Brain Pickings (always interesting postings)

Bonus material on Queen Victoria:  I did see her knickers at the Kent State Museum.  Think Victoria’s Tent Sale rather than Victoria’s Secret.
