They are cool and I figure the more I do them, I should get better at it. Today I googled "easy sketches" for more ideas. I did a couple of cartoons, a girl, and an eagle, It was fun. Next, I want to try a landscape.

Me too - some days I do some sketching and somedays not. I watched a few videos on that 3D drawing, and I really want to try some of those! They are so cool!

It is pretty easy. Give it a try. I have been trying to do a little drawing. Some days I get my 10 minutes in, other days not so much. I will continue to sketch some. I will keep you updated.

Actually getting some practice with art. I think it will be more fun if under different circumstances. Ouch!!! Very hard to sit. Just getting tired of standing.

I did sketch for a few minutes in the morning yesterday. Then last evening our daughter and the kids came over and Rosie and I did some drawing with markers. We love doing art or crafts together, and it is so much more fun for me now that Rosie is finally past the stage of telling me what I have to draw, and what colour I have to use!

Great. And if you see that any of you are ready for lessons again, just let me know. I have a lot of cool resources that I will post now and then for a fun challenge. I actually got 5 minutes in once I got started. I enjoyed it very much. I think this will work for me. emoticon

I was doing so well, but got busy with other things and put it aside. I will do my best to get in 2 minutes per day! Good idea, DJ!

It seems we are all interested in art but have no time for it. So I thought I would change this challenge to see if it will help us at least get art in our day.

I thought we could draw for 2 minutes a day. Just show up and doodle. That will get us in the habit of taking the time. If we don't take the time, then we know now is not the time for art. I am hopeful this will get me started because so far it is a no go. emoticon

Sounds interesting! Iím currently reading some fantasy novel, but I was looking for something WWI or WWII related (my secret hope is that some narrative book could increase my general knowledge of the period)

The Alice Network, by Kate Quinn.
WWI, and post-WWI; dual storylines, based on a true spy ring that operated in occupied France, where all the operatives were women. Some feisty characters, some rather un-ladylike language, universal themes of friendship, courage, loss.
I am enjoying it, and am looking forward to our Book Club discussion.

I volunteered to lead the discussion and present about the author at our Book Club meeting next week, so have been using all my free moments to do some research and get the book read, so I am really glad for the extra week!

Are we wanting to move to Lesson 2 or do we need another week to start on lesson 1? I am good with either, but I know Fran has been busy moving and I have been getting used to a new schedule. I am good with either way.

I am glad you are enjoying it. Darlene has a lot of tutorials for drawing faces so I think you will get a lot out of her site. I am excited about it. I hope to get time to draw more tomorrow.

I have been doing a bit of sketching, and I really enjoy it! I find drawing people, faces, and animals really difficult but I love doing shading. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed drawing as a kid and a young adult. It has been years since I did much of anything creative.

Joanne, I am glad you can use it now. I have wanted to learn to draw for a while. I started a while back but the schedule got busy. The other challenges have gone so well, I think this one will be great. I really appreciate all the excitement. I brought out drawing supplies for my grandkids too. They bring such joy. Rosie sounds like a delight.

Rosie dropped over and saw my sketch book and pencils. She was intrigued. Next she asked if I had a sketch book for her. We found one. She drew umpteen pictures, and I was allowed to help with some small details.
I just love that girl!
