2 hands, 2 keys, 2 watches, and some scribbles

My 201st post is more sketches of things found on the table before going to bed. I’ve done a sketch every day for the last 3 years, and it’s these late night ones that are often the hardest to start, but also the most rewarding. They’re done fairly fast, and as I’m too tired to interfere in the process they tend to be simpler and less fussy; line, shade, colour, and off to bed… (The scribbles are a regular feature in my sketchbooks, testing inks, getting pens to work, trying out colours etc.)

    Daily sketches for 3 years! Bravo! Great shadows, especially the hand. I find my own sketches like this to be uninspired, yet there’s always something to be learned.

    Thanks Tina, adding the shadows is always my favourite bit! Ed
