Sunday #Sketchbook – February Drawing Challenge

To improve my sketching speed and techniques, I’m attempting to sit down and draw every day in February. I missed Friday, and yesterday’s and today’s doodles are both on the same page but I’ve already created a lot more art than I normally would in a month. I’m aiming for as much range in the images as I can so if you have any suggestions for things that I could have a go at drawing, then please drop them in the comments below.

Watcher Under The Table – A Poem By Carol J Forrester

Exhausted, your prostate yourself,
legs aloft and crooked,
chin tilted towards some ceiling corner
as if to suggest you were focused
on anything but us.
Still,
you follow footsteps with a beady eye,
wriggle your spine against tile,
happiness thumping in rapid, swishing beats.

As Lillian shared a lovely doggy snap with us tonight, I thought I’d include a sketch I did last month. I’m currently 9,000 words deep in NaNoWriMo, but when I’m not writing I have a go at improving my drawing skills, which mainly involves many hours of looking, sketching, going ‘well that’s shit”, erasing and trying again.
