January Sketching - Days 10 & 12

Yes, I know it's January 22, and I'm ten days behind in the Artist's Journal Workshop January sketch challenge. That's the way these challenges often go for me, and I know I'm not alone in that. I've been so busy preparing for my upcoming classes that I haven't been taking the time to do a daily sketch, but believe me, I've been feeling plenty guilty about it. Does that count? :)

Anyway....here are the two sketches I have managed to complete:

Day 10 - Draw a medicinal plant

5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Ink & watercolor, drawn with a Pitt pen, in a Stillman & Birn Alpha series sketchbook

Day 12 - Draw the last gift you received
We always open our stockings after all the other presents have been opened on Christmas morning, and my husband always gives me delicious chocolates and other yummies that I wouldn't buy for myself. If I remember correctly, these Venchi chocolates were the last gift I received Christmas day. I know they were the tastiest. I'm savoring them one by one, and I still have four left - what control!

I'm heading for Florida early tomorrow morning for a five-day visit with my friend, Judy. It's going to feel great to soak up the sunshine and dip my toes in the Gulf. I'm hoping to get some sketching done, but I might just be too relaxed to pick up a pen. I'll check in when I return to the frigid northeast.
