Sketches keep on coming...some good some bad

and ya know some are beloved HP 1350xi is driving me nuts with this Mac Book Pro, works for a little while and the quits...then I have to download the drivers AGAIN...maybe its about time to get a new zoomy printer to go with my zoomy computer??? ANYWAY here is what i have scanned so far...before the mac said it could not communicate with the HP...

The first one is a cp sketch i did of the tulips before i drew the big one...hmmm am i acutually using the sketchbook as the prep for a bigger sketch??? is it possible?

The next one is one of two or is three pages i drew from All Creatures Great and Small...been watching it off and on getting them from Netflixs...I finally watched the last disk....all of the characters make you want to get out the sketchbook, pause the dvd and draw like crazy...this is Roddy Travers an intinerant tinker/farm hand who thought he was going to have to put his beloved Murphey the dog down because everyone thought Murphey was killing sheep...of course Siegfried cleared Murphey at the last moment and kept James from having to put him down.

Roddy almost drew himself and Murphey a great big hairy white wolf hound looking dog was not as kind to me!

So not to be outdone i drew four more pages of of the old man who thought Murphey was killing his sheep...his face would sort of drape everytime he moved...a very old sheep farmer...a sketch of the a too long faced Sigfried Farnum...then a fast drawing of the partners with their phone number...and well the cow got away from me...was too tired to go back thru the dvd looking for it...and cows are not my thing....but next dvd I will draw some animals...hmmm maybe i just need a dvd of pics of animals I can draw??

OK more fast afterschool sketches of the kids...they love to get my book and figure out who is who...we had another day with Meg ...the hamster trying to draw her and talk about what she was up she was Nipping a Nut...hmmm do hamsters eat nuts...dont remember feeding ours nuts...but hamster food...but its been years and years since we had one...

Last i drew a couple of sketches of two of the teachers while we were in a is the back..and the other ...well it does look like her but she looks younger in the sketch..adding in those shadows can definitely get you in trouble! Both with the sketchee and the sketch:>

Great face sketches - you've certainly caught some aspects of Siegfried.
