Re: An invitation to post your P&I sketches, doodles, scratchings and scribbles .......

Blooming, those cartoons are great. You have a clean style with these whimsical characters, great lines, good volume and shape. Well done!

Nice flowers, Katwalk. Very cool little sketch.

Wayne, wow. Intelligible blind contour drawing. I've done that, nowhere near as well as you just did. I have to look at what I'm doing or I'm so lost.

Gorgeous hazelnut branch, white pen. I love the refined accuracy and feel of it being right there, the values and shadows.

Cool leaf, Mike!

Wow, okay, everyone here is really good at this, so I'll post my life sketches anyway. The boot and first cat drawing killed one of my black Tombow pens, so I got some interesting fading-out values on the boot before I flipped it over to use the last of the ink in the bullet nib end. I was not having a good day by that point, today's sketch of my cat is a bit truer.

Great stuff Robert - exactly what a sketch book page should look like.
You can tell a lot about someone when they just grab the nearest thing to them to sketch - a psychologist would have a field day !

The other day I sketched a large very cluttered coffee table in front of me , I seen the sketch lying around the next day & realised that every bit of clutter was a symbol of my life history or inner psychology ! No you can't see it - it's just too personal , even if it is just a collection of everyday mundane objects.

I wonder why you sign each one , or sign a sketch at all ?
Do you have it in mind to show them to others when you make them.
Cheers Mike

Robert great sketchbook drawings, esp like the rear view of your sleeping cat. And boots or shoes are always a good subject.

Mike, do I sign my sketchbook drawings, hmm it depends, if they are just for me personally then no I don't, but if I am going to post the drawing to either my blog or here or facebook then yes I will. Sometimes I forget to, but I really try to make sure anything I post to the internet has a signature of some kind.

I am working on a major piece so haven't been doing much sketching.

Re: An invitation to post your P&I sketches, doodles, scratchings and scribbles .......

I was without an internet connection for a few days and it is wonderful to see so many new posts.

Mike...It is wonderful when a fallen leaf can inspire such a sketch.

W.P....I like the composition of your sketch and the blue ink gives it a special charm.

Wayne...I've read about blind contour drawings but am yet to try it. Looks challenging.

Kathy...Nice vase and bookshelf. And by the way, I too try and sign anything that I post.

Blooming...Wonderful set of sketches. I love every character that you have posted. And thank you for your nice comment.

Robert...Terrific shading in all your sketches. You have brought out the form so well.

Somebody who was to meet me this morning stood me up. I made this quick ink sketch with a gel pen while waiting impatiently for him to turn up.

Excellent sketch Balaji - you seem to get more interesting subjects to sketch in your street than I do in mine !

This sketch is infinitely more interesting than anything I might find while waiting for an appointment!
It's very good - you have the essence of the scene in a few rapid strokes.
Nice work!

Re: An invitation to post your P&I sketches, doodles, scratchings and scribbles .......

I am tickled to see more sketches being posted! I think sketching is an art form unto itself. For me, I find that a sketch draws me in deeper, keeps me there longer, and illicits more of an emotional response. I think the response is to the use of tone and line quality/weight. A painting rarely does that to me. While I can find a painting beautiful or well executed, it rarely moves me, with the exception of Van Gogh, and I think that is because he still employs the use of line.

Robert, thank you for the positive feedback! I love your use of line! The pear was my favorite! So few lines and yet so expressive! I also was impressed by the perspective in these drawings, a perspective I struggle with. Thanks for posting!

Blah, your quick sketch illustrates exactly what I was speaking of. The immediacy, deft handling, calligraphic strokes, impart such a feeling! I could FEEL the impatience! Please keep sharing!

Blah LOL no I don't think your street scene would be seen in my area of the world, esp. as I am fairly sure that there are no cows living in the city where I live, maybe a few is surrounding towns, but they tend to stay close to home, and prefer their fields to paved streets. Great sketch.

Yesterday was the US Thanksgiving day, a day we tend to get together with family or friends and eat way too much food. I visited with a friend and did this sketch during the after dinner veg out.

A glass vase with some flowers, very sketchy

I get this totally .
Very often you come to look at a sketch a master has done for his famous painting & appreciate more than the resulting painting !
More direct, more lively, more truth & authenticity in it.

When doing more complex pen & ink studies I always try to keep some of that spontaneity by working at speed & from direct reference but it isn't always easy.
Takes an artist to appreciate a sketch though ! you can hammer a subject to death with an extreme quality of finish & "polish " & it will receive applause & admiration from from your average guy on the street.
Good job we have WC. to introduce us to fellow sketch aficionados !
Mike

Well captured W.P. - no other animal has such a superior and sometimes supercilious expression!
Love this!
