Sketches from my sketchbook.

Here are some sketches from my sketchbook. I haven't been doing the daily prompts or even drawing daily but I am drawing as much as I can. Quite a few of these were done in the Boiler House at Footscray hospital as it is a good opportunity for me to draw because I have a little waiting to do there. Some of these were also from the scavenger hunt at WetCanvas last week.

1. First is a very large valve.

2. An alarm panel in the boiler house!
3. Obviously, a hairbrush and some batteries in the back of the remote control.
4. My favourite toy, well one of them, Gameboy and my favourite gameboy game.
5. Oxy-Acetylene, gas welding set.
6. My mobile phone.
7. The kitchen sink and the plug from it.
8. Electric shaver and one of my drawing pens.
9. A pump from a large plant room at work.
10. Tools from my tool box! Well, some of them.

FANTASTIC!! The details, colors, EXACTITUDE -- all of it -- admirable and beautifully rendered!

I love the valve and all the mechanical sketches. They're really delightful and a feast for the eyes and I'm sure much more lovely than the real objects--although drawing them does seem to make them more beautiful in person too, doesn't it.

WOW, Shelly you have been busy! Each and every one of these sketches are SUPER! Love that first one of the valve, and the sink and the brush and your tools, oh heck I love 'em all!

I love your bolier room machinery drawings - they give each piece their own character as if they were people - wonderful

Thank you so much for your comments. Yes, I try to draw everyday... Not so easy to get going... Luckily summer vacation are over and kids go to school in the morning. Have fun drawing!
