5 objects. 7 times.

I rarely draw the same thing more than once. These drawings were for a painting assignment. The 5 objects are the same in each, though I moved around slightly to alter the viewpoint.

Special bonus points if you guess which one was used for the painting. :-)

  1. You painted the drunken cat.
    Or vice versa.

  2. Actually, I was thinking more on which sketch rather than which object/subject :) Hmmm...if I'm right...then I'll choose sketch no. 5 :)

    Love the words here....thanks for sharing it...

  3. I will guess the 4th one was used for a painting.

  4. i hope it was number three, because i love the lights against the window in this one....but i suspect it was number 6 or 7.....they are the most abstract.

  5. The great thing is that no matter how much you draw and redraw them, in whatever position, it's always a WB drawing. Cool.

  6. i like the second one... are you going to tell us?

  7. i'm going for 5... these are stunning WB, i have much love for still lifes! :) xx

  8. Love these.... I think each is an excellent base for a painting, but the last one gets my vote.

    the teddy bear with the rose? i like the composition of second one best. heeeeee

  10. It was number 6!

    You can see the painting here:

  11. Hey there, Willie: My mind read the question differently - I figured you used both the SKETCH BOOK AND EASLE FOR 'your painting'.

    I was thinking: Okay, Willie has to use a sketch book before he goes to paint. Willie has to use an easel WHILE he paints. So - I thought we were to guess what you USED, in the process of creating the FINAL ART PIECE!

    Anyway, I loved them all - as I do each and every one on this page! Diane


Thanks for stopping by! :-)
