ISn't great to draw when we have to wait. I had to wait at the DMV the other day and the time went by so fast because I was drawing.
XOXO Happy Mom Day to you too.

Very well done sketch, Sheila! I haven't done that in years...I kick myself for missing so many great opportunities.

Great and nice work.

Sheila, I am sure you want to see some Amazingly Beautiful pictures painted by artist without hand. Then come to visit my blog. Thanks

God bless,

Love your sketches, as always. Do you ever approach your subject afterward to show them or no?
I once had a woman sketching me, or so I thought becuase she kept drawing on a sketch book and looking up at me. i wanted to know or at least see what it looked like but would have been embarassed if she was not sketching me at all.
Love your work

Happy Mothers Day to you!!

Great lines! Wonder if he'd been smiling if knew about your work on the force...?

Sheila!

I love, love, love sketches! Especially pen and ink ones.

This quick sketch is great.

Very lively looking (one of the reasons I love sketches so much) and animated in appearance.

Nice job capturing the "dude's" body language and the overall impression of him.

Sketching people (unaware live models) is very tricky to do because they could move at any moment!

Really nice job with that, Sheila!

so excellent. I have to say your understanding of human anatomy and expression is so skilled (no surprise there). I love your figure drawings.

Great sketch! You are very good at this!

Did you make him nervous? Looks like he knew you were drawing him and he was enjoying it ;) Love it, you captured how relaxed he was and wonderful movement!

Manon Doyle said...
