falling behind

I am really trying hard to catch up with allllll thiiiissssss petttttyyyy, littttllllleeee things that happened during my trip to Poland, work is allll aroundddd meeeeee and even though Winter is gone I feel sleeeeppppyyyyy.
So to drag myself out of this trauma I am posting few new and old sketches.I've stopped yesterday evening at our local park and saw this memorial. Haven't finished sketching it (pencil 5B) as I was in a hurry to do some shopping and it was getting late anyway. I forgot my Pitt Pen so had to use pencil, strange feeling but I've noticed an improvement:) hurrrrreeeeyyyyy
this (old) sketch I've done from a book, but although I was quite happy with it, there is nothing like sketching from life, not copying someone else's pictures or drawings. I felt like fraud and it doesn't do any good to my self esteeme. It's better for me to do this small, not so perfect, sketches of my own:) and people still want to see them:)) not that bad after all:)

my suitcase just before the trip and a few people on the airport. There is a weight limit on the Wizzair airlines 20 kg. It seems like my suitcase is programmed to carry 20kg or more. No matter if I am going or coming back...always 20 or more:) Unfortunately I haven't been able to shop for art supplies in Poland although more and more often I find prices almost the same as in much for cheap shopping in Poland.
last sketch...a tauch of colour:)
that's it I am tired again...:)

It's always hard to get to routine when you travel. The sketches are nice. Soon you will be back to your old self dancing and jumping for joy.

I like the suitcase and the medicine (?) And I agree with you about drawing from life vs. photos, although it is sometimes necessary to work from a photo. Take care-Becky
