November Sketches, Sketch Art 12 + 13, Anemone Flowers + Seashells...


***I am pleased to report that my left hand continues to heal.  Hand permitting, I will most likely post again on Tuesday, after that I hope to resume my usual posting schedule.***



Here is a sketch of anemone flowers.  It is in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.   I'm unsure if I'll paint them or not, but I did enjoy sketching them.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in November.  This is from day 12.  

This is a sketch in colored pencils.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.  I'm not really a colored pencil artist but I am exploring something new for the sketchbook, I was going to try inking in October, but the pages of this Moleskine sketchbook are far too thin for that.  I will be juxtaposing my usual rough sketches with the colored pencil sketches at varying intervals.  I tend to sketch very lightly, so these and my usual pencil ones are darkened a bit in photoshop for online viewing. 



Here is a sketch of a seashell.  It is in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.   I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
