Shoes, Jacket ...and Oranges!

Days have been sunny, lately-- a real treat in this time of the year.I took some pictures of the jacket and oranges to study the values and tones.The feet, however belong to mu husband and were captured in artificial light...I drew them all together last night while watching TV!Yes, I was 'watching' a movie with a sketchbook in my hands because 'just' sitting and watching TV feels like a waste of time to me :D........... Hubby hates it, of course!He is a TV buff.....I have my vices!!!
Today I celebrate my birthday ( of course, the two guys in my life very conveniently forgot to bring me any cards, flowers or chocolate....I wish I had a daughter!) Later we plan to go out for lunch, it looks like a great day outside.
Happy Sunday!

  3. Happy Birthday Arti. I hope you have a good one. I expect your husband and son are keeping the chocolates and flowers back to surprise you later.

  4. A most happy birthday to you, Arti!! Daughters don't always remember either! LOL Love these sketches you've done. You are truly one of the most talented artists I know. Beautiful job! I admire you for watching tv with a sketchbook in hand. I'm far too lazy - or something. LOL

  14. The drawing here is great. I sketch sometimes in front of the tube, but with much less detail. Happy Birthday… I wouldn’t let them off for forgetting…
