Paint Party Friday

I'm making some promises to myself in this new year. One of them is that I will start sketching in the evenings while everyone is watching tv. I used to do this as a regular practice, and then stopped when I started doing a lot more reading in the evenings. Nothing wrong with reading, but I drifted into reading lighter and lighter material, to the point where I realized I might as well be watching tv...

So tonight I was making some little sketches for a friend. When I finished I was flipping through a magazine and sketched some women from ads. This one was my favorite.

Like you I enjoy sketching while the TV is on. Sometimes I glance up and freeze the frame to sketch a closeup. I used to do the same thing when I practiced shorthand. I'd put the news on and try to write everything the reporter was saying. Tricky but good practice.

Anyway, love your colorful drawing!

What a lovely face. Great idea about sketching during TV time. I tend to read as well. Will have to try this for sure. Happy New Year!

I love her! I always paint, sketch whatever with the tv on in the background. Enjoy the New Year with more creativity!

Hooray for sketching in the evenings! I have been doing that myself, and in front of the tv.
Love the colors in this portrait. She looks like a determined woman. :)
