Matt asked me to do a drawing for the back of his color Nook, so I thought that would make a good Christmas gift. I didn’t tell him what I was drawing, mainly because I wasn’t entirely sure I’d have time to finish it in time for Christmas.
I’ve still got a bit of cleaning and playing to do before I’m calling it finished, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Of course the final will probably look more like this:
Holiday preparation is eating my brain. Here’s another drawing from when I was pregnant.
Obviously unfinished. Another one I did at a Borders (a what now?) and since I’m not all that practiced at this kind of landscape (or any kind of landscape really) I didn’t get that far in the space of a decaf Oreo Javakula and a brownie. This is, apparently, the city of Pitigliano, from the book The Most Beautiful Villages of Tuscany.
It’s been a productive weekend (which isn’t necessarily all you want from a weekend, but the weekend before Christmas, necessary) so I forgot to post yesterday until I was already in bed. I’m not sure I would have had time to write anything of quality anyway.
Speaking of not having time to write anything of quality.
Here’s a drawing:
I drew this while I was pregnant. I’ve got a thing for intricate organic shapes. It’s labeled “Golden Gate: February” which I assume is the Magazine I was drawing from. I don’t have the magazine because I did my drawing in Borders. Ahhh, Borders.
