Sleepy-eyed Sketcher

Hi there dear reader!

Today's post isn't going to be terribly long as I'm quite tired today and as a result my brain isn't in full operation. Since I'm working on some commissions, most of which are gifts so I don't dare post them, I figured I'd share with you a page out of my sketchbook:

Western sketches
Copyright Rita Woodburne

These are a couple of sketches for two seperate works I plan on doing. Both were done in pencil and each took about 45 minutes to do. They probably would've taken much less time but I was watching UFC at the time and was working on them in between making sarcastic comments at the television.

So really, that's it for today. I think I need to go back to bed so I'll have enough energy to enjoy the warmer weather we're going to be getting later today.

I'll be back later in the week with more art and gardening!

Very nice sketches :D

What else is watching UFC for if not for making sarcastic comments? ;p (that and seeing the dangers of too much steroid use :p)

Lol! Thanks Jennifer!

"...dangers of too much steroid use." No kidding, eh? ;)

Nice, I like the depth!

Drawing is a great way to allieviate the boring parts of television. ;)

I am SO jealous that you could do all that in such little time. (and it looks great, too.)
I think I need to practice more.

Meg and Regina, thanks for the comments!

Too bad drawing requires a certain amount of concentration, I can think of lots of boring situations when I would rather be working on art...like sitting in traffic. :p
