day umm Seventh day of may?



This started out as QUITE a good sketch of my youngest son drew...did i say hes graduating from law school Friday...oops dont let him here me say that...he will get me for ah hem"bragging" or at least thats the way he sees it...guess i am supposed to say my son ...doesnt do anything?

Anyway i was goign to paint it when i was not tired but then i reread Charles Reid's watercolor secrets...the part about painting people.....he said the reason to do loose contour drawings of whoever you want to paint is so that you have alot invested in keeping the picture faithful to the subject...so he gave me permission to slap some paint on...I can tell you drew never looked like this even at halloween...but it was fun! Funny thing it does have an air of drew about it just like the book said...but I think hes really alot cuter dont you...:> Hmm maybe i do need to try again when i ahve more time...at least i got day 7 done...off to bed...good nite all!
