I really didn't know what to title this post. The three portraits are from my book club meeting this evening, but then so were the mish-mash of drawings on the next page. I didn't count these as individual drawings because they were all sort of one stream of consciousness doodle done while I was really thinking about the discussion.
On the left is a tangerine that someone was getting ready to eat, someone's lovely necklace, an apple core, and the tangerine's skin after it was peeled. At the bottom right was the beginning of a shoe drawing, but the shoe was moved completely and never returned to its original position.
After the meeting I felt like I needed some more drawing, this time a bit more focused. So I scooped three lemons out of the fridge and did contour drawings of them twice.
I'm not really happy with the paper in this little journal. I used up some paper left over from a project when I made the journal, and it was a poor choice. Insufficiently sized, it bleeds through sometimes, and the surface is never predictable. Even my super fine point V-ball catches and blots from time to time. I'm also finding the size a little too small! I used to love this tiny size, but maybe it's the combination of unpredictable paper surface and tiny size that make me race through this book so that I can get back to the size I'm more comfortable with these days and a paper that lets me control my lines more. Of course this is a good opportunity to let go of some control, so I'm trying to practice being slightly uncomfortable with drawing, very interesting!
