:) My Friends, yesterday I went to fetch my Mum at the church and while I was waiting I sketched this:

Very nice effect with the trees - very light and airy feelling.

MJ, your "waiting" sketches are always so wonderful. I love this one.

05-12-2003, 11:16 PM
You were obviously well prepared for this - washes too!;)

Great sketch, the wash gives the drawing depth.

Lovely again MJ, I wish my waiting times were as productive as yours, I simply do nothing. A stupid question: do you add the washes later at home or there while drawing the subject (I'm thinking of doing sketches like this myself instead of just waiting)

Very nice MJ....I like it very much. The washes seem to bring it to life.

Lovely ink and wash MJ!! :) I think it's great that you take the time to sketch while you're out and about :D Have you ever thought of rendering the Church too? :D:)

Great sketch, MJ!! I really like the washes behind the branches of the trees...it gives them a lot of depth!

Hey southern beauty

You were waiting for Mum ...
and I was waiting for you
in the shadow of this lovely garden just behind the fence ...

:cool: I like the way you sketched it it is fresh and sunny, wild and not too much.
:( You could have drawn the fence a bit more straight... the door is terribly creaking so !

Didnt I tell them that you will have to go to church to share your pets with your little camarades ? :D

:D Wow my Friends. You are all so kind. LOL
No one but Cyrille pointed my absolute unability with perspective... LOL ( I have a terrible problem with buildings and any other kind of constrution like wall,gates, windows etc...) I am starting to try to overstep this...Does anybody know a simple and clear way to do it? I really need help in this! LOL

H E L P!

:D Hey fresh cod souffl !

Do you think we would love you more
if you were sketching industrial drawings ?

The charm of this garden IS this creaking door.

I like to look at it
I love to hear it ...
that gives me the pleasure to know that in a few seconds your warm presence will fill the house ...


:D ae ae ae Dahzl will wait for me with her rolling pin :D
I have better to wear a hat tonight http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/13-May-2003/19462-turban.gif

I was directed here by ... you can guess who ...:D
Never mind, I just want to say I love your ink sketch. It is very spontaneous and excellent impressionistic drawing !

That means that my little fennec is free to get in and out !

Don't listen to him, my sweet white she-camel,
This fence is perfect and I love the way you draw the palm trees

:o Thanks Iznogood!

Hey Southern Beauty

Do I have to ring you to have news ?
I know that Iznogood is taking care of you... a bit too much .

But at the moment he is running after a new "mirage"
So we are alone for a while

Gilberte just showed us photos of her friends , she travels a lot.
