Another Sketch

pen & ink sketch kid's sunglasses

Lesson learned with this one. I had a rather long wait for my children one day and decided to sketch in the car. Only to find I had very little of anything that inspired me to sketch. So now I know I should carry subject material for sketching with me.

These sunglasses belong to my daughter. For some reason they do not sit flat, especially when propped up on the dashboard. Could be they were made that way, but it is more likely that someone sat on them at some point. I sketched them first in pen and then in pencil. Daylight was fading quickly so my primary focus was on speed. Even then I did not get to finish the pencil sketch.

Doesn't it drive you crazy when you have that spare moment and nothing grabs your artistic attention?

Anita, it does drive me crazy, especially since I've been faced with this predicament more than once. You'd think I'd learn!! Maybe this time.

Hi there sketchy girl.
Glad to see you posting no matter what the subject matter. I like those glasses.

Thanks Blue! The good thing about sketching is I have more images to post. I'm working on some bigger stuff, but nothing is ready to share just yet.
