Classic car

Last Thursday (April 23) my sketch group went to Lux Appraisers and Estate Services in Emeryville. Old furniture, lamps were among the many things in this warehouse. I found this old classic car in a corner and I obviously had to sketch it because it's red! I was close to stopping while sketching because I didn't like where this was going but I stuck with it. I'm learning how to appreciate the process of sketching even when the outcome isn't what I envisioned.

Sketched in the New Year

I started off the year 2015 with the desire to sketch and post my sketches regularly. I joined the A Drawing a Day group - an online drawing group - and have pretty much drawn daily since Jan. 1, exactly a week ago today. On day one I drew a church in west Oakland. Couldn't find the signage but the church is located at 8th and Jefferson streets.
