Out and About Sketches





Here are a few recent sketches. My heart isn't in it at present and I've been greatly tempted to tear pages out of sketchbooks. Posting them here will keep me honest :)

I would love to have your "disappointing pages" in my sketchbook!

Robyn said...

Shirley - thank you. Maybe I'm just out of sorts - our little dog, Snowy isn't doing well and maybe that is colouring my view of everything.

Jennifer Rose said...

love the sketch of the ruined house. very old look to it which goes well with the subject

Sherrie Y said...

Good for you, Robyn.... there are a lot of famous admonitions to keep working, even when "it's not working." Can't think of a single one at the moment... so you'll just have to do with me!

I read "retired" house at first! It's all this grit in my eyes!

And I'm sorry to hear about Snowy.

Leslie said...

These are wonderful. Good for you for sketching and posting even when your heart isn't in it. I'm so sorry to hear that Snowy is not doing well! Our animals are such a large part of our lives, aren't they?

Oh, I think these are just beautiful, Robyn! Don't tear them out!! They're lovely!

I see nothing wrong with these. I really like them. Hope Snowy feels better soon.

Sydney said...

I'm sorry to hear about Snowy.

I like the rosehips and the ruined house. Personally when I'm tempted to tear pages out, they often don't seem so bad when I go back later.

I admire you for working through it. Your disappointing is, at this point, my good day (art-wise) but I am sorry about Snowy - hope he feels better (and you too).

Stacy said...

I say if you are disappointed in your sketches you should rip them out... but only if you send them to me. Because I think they are lovely. Your watercolors always look effortless.

I hope Snowy is doing better. Keep up with the sketching. Art can help us get through any tough situation.

One man's trash is another man's treasure! By all means tear them out, but send them to me!
I especially love the rosehips one.

hope that your doggy does well...
