Muse: A source of inspiration and a guiding spirit.
Today’s Muse is a Mother and Daughter I happened to sketch at the pub the other night. Daughter brought her lap top and was on it the whole night. Never said a word to Mother. Mother talked to Father, who was sitting across from her, all night and never said a word to Daughter. Neither looked very happy. Neither looked at the other.
I was sad. My mother was sometimes like a sister. My sister was sometimes like my mother.
- Each with empty heart
- Both wish they could be sisters
- They remain alone
Here are more patrons of the pub. I am finally getting the courage to add a bit of shadowing!
Sketching at Silver Vines Winery with my friend Jane who has had lessons. Here is a sketch she drew of me. She was way too kind.
Here is one I did of Jane. Yikes! Trying to figure out glasses and eyes…… Hey I was in a dark wine bar…….😕🍷 and drinking wine…………
Here are sketches we did of the same woman.
And of the same man. Jane gave him a smile. I drew it as I saw it (no smile). Jane is really sweet.
And one I did of a guy sitting at the bar. With a broccoli ear. Well that’s how it looked in the dark wine bar…
Jane will be able to help me with shading and a ton of other stuff. Maybe being kinder and sweet.
We both are learning to be quick.
I tend to pick a distinctive feature to start with. Jane uses her lessons and works on proportions and detail.
I thought that maybe I need to take lessons but Jane said to let my skills develop a little bit before I take lessons and worry about things like proportions and detail later. Isn’t she sweet?
