Interior Sketch

approx. 5.5" x 9"
2B in Canson Field sketchbook

Here is a quick sketch I did last night. I don't normally sketch interiors, but I wanted to sit on the couch by hubby as he watched the Penn State game, and this is what caught my eye. I did it in graphite since I don't trust myself with watercolors on the couch!

After my sketch, I started a new stippling project. This is only my third one ever, but I find stippling to be a very relaxing activity. Sort of like I imagine knitting to be. And since the image takes so long to build up, I can do it while listening to the TV or having a conversation with someone. Perfect for when I want to do art and curl up on the couch.

It doesn't look like much now, but after quite a bit of time and millions upon millions of dots it should look better. Does that sound like crazy person talk or what?

Jennifer, glad to know I'm not the only crazy person who finds creating a picture out of a kabillion dots relaxing. :p As for the, not real. I have a tough enough time keeping the kids fed and watered so I prefer my plants to be of the artificial variety.

Thanks Ronell! I hope you have a lot of patience. It could be a while for this pen and ink.
