Finding my love of sketching again

Finding my love of sketching again - student project

Hi! My name is Jen. I have a wonderful husband, 2 fabulous children and a full time job as a graphic artist. I haven't sketched or painted in years and have been so excited to have found this class and get creative in that aspect again! Here are a few sketches/paintings that I have done. I don't have a lot of time to devote to sketching everyday, however, I'm trying to find time in my busy life here and there. Thank you so much for teaching this amazing class Elisa!

This was my first sketch. It's an old candle holder that I have with different colored glass on each side.

This is my second sketch. I live in a very snowy place with cold temperatures so I ended up taking one of my photos from my camera and using it to sketch from. This is an old barn that I run past quite often. I love barns. :-)

This is my third sketch. Another picture I had taken from last summer, that inspired me to draw from.

This is my fourth sketch. Another photo I had taken from one of my runs. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so that I can get outside to start sketching straight from nature!
