A quick drawing on Day 85

Today was a relaxing day. I picked up the book I’ve been reading and ended up finishing it. It’s ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and yes, I’m late to this party. I wanted to read the book before seeing the movie as I always like the book better than its cinematic counterpart. I found the first 500 pages or so to be a bit slow, but then it picked up in a big way and I couldn’t put it down! I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

I did a very quick gestural drawing today in my brand new sketchbook. I got a new one since my husband and I are heading on a vacation later this week and I’ll need it to do my daily drawing (so prepare yourselves to live without me for a week!).

I don’t do a lot of drawing from life really and I would really like to do more. This drawing only took a few minutes – it’s a candy dish and a plant on top of a cabinet in the corner of my bedroom. I may go back and put in some shading but for a two minute drawing I’m very pleased with how it turned out.
