Sketches



I've been revisiting my love for drawing after a few years of doing nothing but painting and simple sketches for paintings.  I decided to jump back in with portraits so I found a class in the area and signed up!  This is what I'm currently trying to finish up.  Our teacher is, Maureen Killaby, a wonderful self-taught artist in the East Texas area.  You can see her work here or on her blog.

I'm also trying to do at least one simple or fun sketch a day.  Here are some examples from my journal:

Sarah R. McInroe "A Difficult Truth"

Sarah R. McInroe "Hedgehog on a Rainbow"

Sarah R, McInroe "Childhood Cotton"


"Childhood Cotton" is a actually much bigger than the others and going to be a finished pen and watercolor.  Very different for me but I'm enjoying using a different medium and I love how crisp it comes out.  Trying to find what you really love to draw/paint is tough (or at least it has been for me).  I'm all over the place!  These aren't the greatest pictures either, I'll try to take some better ones soon.
