Day 1 Sketch
Okay, this first one is more of a color doodle.  Just playing around.
 The next one is part of the challenge.  Things Valued.  Today is the anniversary of my dog's death last year.  I miss her a lot.  I did not get another dog, as I have 4 cats, but it is not the same.  She was a sweetheart.  And she was so incredibly beautiful! When I would take her for walks, people would stop in their tracks to cross the street and tell me how beautiful my dog was.  At least my sketch looks recognizable, like a dog's face, but it doesn't show her beauty.  The shapes are a bit off.  I still believe that learning to draw is more about learning to see than what happens in my hand.  I am excited to see if practice will make a difference.


  1. I think for someone who says she doesn't think she can draw, you did an amazing job drawing your dog.
