I’m so impressed by people like Eleanor Lowden who get up in the morning and paint.
They have 20 things done by the time I’m drinking my coffee. So I thought, 'why not
start the day with a sketch?' I did. But I was using the wrong pen. Then I did something
I rarely do, and traced my own drawing. I thought I’d try it again with a finer pen.
But we go into lockdown at midnight tonight, so we had to go out and pick up a few things
before all the stores in Toronto are closed (like art supplies). Apparently the liquor store
is exempt because it's an "essential service". I find that funny. Back home for a few minutes,
I started a painting of tulips with acrylic ink. A lot of fun -- but nothing finished, so I’ll just
show you my first sketch, and wish you a very creative week.
It’s taken a long time to get my creative self going again. Now I can feel ideas coming into my
head, and that’s a delightful feeling. I'll keep that happening, and leave Covid alone. Sooner
or later we will be getting together and rejoicing. Oh man it will be fun! A very snowy day today --
absolutely gorgeous. I hope you had a great day too.
Love your portrait sketches❣️❣️❣️ I was drawing first thing every day all summer long but the dark has now thrown out my schedule. I know I can turn on a light but somehow the quiet dark morning coffee is so comfortable 😀. 🤗 and hope the lockdown isn’t too long. We are in a partial lockdown here. ❤️❤️❤️
Being a night person, I don't mind the dark mornings, but I'm sorry they've intruded on your process. I find the days ending early upsetting. I actually got out for a walk today before the dark descended (4:30). My husband reassures me that in less than a month the light will come back. I will be so ready! Sorry about your lockdown. I just want people to do what's right, so we can end this. Your drawings have made me so happy and inspired during this time.
