Claire #1

I missed posting a sketch for my one year anniversary of busting out my sketchbook for the first time by a long shot.  It’s already been a good 10 days or so.  But I suppose that is neither here nor there.  Art doesn’t need a reason, so here you go.

This is my friend Claire, the first of four sketches I’ve done of her so far.


I did this one exclusively in 3B instead of my usual much harder lead.  It was the first time I tried to use a softer lead after I started drawing again.  I’d like to be able say it was only like three months after I started, but I didn’t, and still don’t, draw nearly as frequently as I should.  So no, it was almost nine months later that I got around to expanding my horizons.  As Michael Cole would say, “VINTAGE Lonestarr~!”.  Yeah, I kinda fail sometimes.

Okay, I’ll shut up now.  Enjoy.

This is Lonestarr, signing off…
