Sketchy Monday (blog marathon post 20)

Remember, I told you all that I am doing a sketching course? I did my course work today.
Oh what joy! I enjoyed it so much.

I am making an illustrated journal and it is a work-in-progress. My first assignment (which is a part of the journal) was that I had to draw and write about an object that meant a lot to me.

I drew my writing desk.

Then I had to record moments from my day, and objects from my daily life, that i like. What was remarkable about this assignment  was that we were banned from erasing or using pencils! The sketches had to directly be with pen. So if we made  a mistake there was no way to correct it. The purpose of training us like this, is to enable us to 'see right', and to observe, get accuracy and to be so sharp, as to get it without erasing.

I am sharing with you, the pages from my sketching journal. Must say I am pretty pleased with what I did.
Let me show you:





Here it is in detail:

And the other one:

The body is actually made up of 60% water. But I wrote 85  as I always thought that was right!

That's all for now folks. More again tomorrow!
