75 Day Sketch Challenge: Days 24-25

Day 24 was almost over, and I hadn't had a chance to do my sketch yet. I picked up my sketchbook and, pen in hand, wandered through the house looking for something to draw. Suddenly I spied my husband sitting on the couch doing some paperwork. Hmmm, this looked like a great opportunity to practice my people skills - people drawing skills, that is. So I gave it a try...

5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Stillman & Birn Alpha series sketchbook; watercolor and ink

The sketch actually does bear some resemblance to Fred, but the guy in the picture looks to be about twenty years younger. Maybe that's the way I still see him.

On Day 25, I drew a view into the powder room, with its floral wallpaper, beadboard trim, and pedestal sink. I liked the way the framed picture on the opposite wall was reflected in the mirror.

And wasn't that clever of me to position myself so that I didn't have to draw the whole toilet? Somehow, I just couldn't bring myself to put that picture in my sketchbook.
