I Don’t Know How She Does It…
Ah, the art of Chapter 15 The Meeting at the Mirror! It bridges the gap between my last sketch that was drawn possibly a year or so ago, and current sketches drawn a week or two ago. This time I would do better! After all, now I knew there would be this blog, and now I knew that my little sketches would be seen by more than my inner circle. Surely I could to better knowing all of that!
The last sketch of the old. I called this drawing “First Quartet.” What a lovely name! So graceful! So elevated!:
I wouldn’t need to elevate my next drawings with fancy names, no! Because this time I was going to draw good! And now, pencils sharpened, erasers found, I now present to you…THE NEW!Hmm….They look the same in quality as the first batch! Maybe a little less wrinkly paper-wise. Ah, well!
Nina’s first sketch of the first:Much better than mine, of course. We had a few notes for this one. Namely, 1.) Dot and Betty should look more friendly rather than scared, 2.) Hazel needs to be half a head or so smaller, and 3.) Hazel needs to wear her necklace.
Here are the real Dot and Betty:
Dot (in the red) has the special feature of “flirty eyes,” which means they not only sleep, they have special weights in them to move side to side. I therefore have requested that in all her images, she should be looking to the side in some degree.
I don’t know how she does it:
And the second sketch, “My Little Human”:
My thoughts are with my mother at this time as my father’s service will be held tomorrow. I’m having a hard time with this, and I was already living long distance! My mother was Right There, side by side for sixty years!
Mom, I love you, Dad I miss you, it’s not forever…because it IS for forever. We shall meet again.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thank you.
