The clippers are my sketch from Sunday night. I have packed up all of my trinkets so have to find regular boring household items to sketch. Actually, I was looking for something really simple to draw as I was having such a hard time focusing.

The ball cap takes care of two things, my EDM hat challenge and my sketch for today. I was going to have a go at the sink but realized that I was WAY to tired to draw something with that much of a prospective challenge.

This ball cap is a very nice red , deep towards the blues, not at all pink but my Scarlet ink dried to more of a pink than red. I didn't want to over do it with color because I liked the original sketch in just pencil (did not scan before adding ink). The arm of the chair started giving me fits, I couldn't quite get my ink thin enough but not too watered down. Anyway, I do love this ball cap although I don't wear it real often. It brings fond memories of going to a ball game with my Grandson's on a warm summer evening. The arena where the R.C.'s home games are played is very clean and family focused. There are a lot of murals and just things that make you feel like you have stepped back in time to a simpler era of cotton candy and family. We have tickets already for a game this season.

I really like the nail clippers! Isn't it interesting how such a mundane subject can be both fun to draw and interesting to look at! Nice job on observing the hat too!

Thanks. Lin, learning to play with color (not too much, not too little) is hard. After looking at your progress I think I want to take both Kate's sketching and Painting classes.

Penny, you are right about mundane subjects being interesting. It is amazing how peersonal something feels after I have taken the time to draw it.

Very nice. I really like the nail clipper. Funny how something so utilitarian can make a great sketch.

Great linework on these sketches, especially the nail clippers. Simple yet defined.
