Week 6 Sketch Page

This past week has been one of those where I've been painting but I haven't been happy with any of my paintings. I'm working through it but let's just go right to the sketch page. We had to take our cat Katie to the vet this week. The first task is to sneak her into the carrier before she realizes what happens. She does not like to go to the vet. I almost had her in the carrier when the phone rang. Katie grabbed my back and wouldn't let go. I lost a bit of blood that day. It took two of us but we did finally get her into the carrier. I've also been doing a lot of knitting for upcoming baby shower gifts. The sketch is done in ink and watercolor with a little bit of colored pencil in the knitting sketch.

There have been a few links I wanted to pass along. Roz Stendahl has been posting a tutorial on eraser carving and printing. She's been giving some excellent information. I've learning a lot. She's up to Part 4 right now.

If you have a microphone on your computer, try out the voice drawing application at . I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I've got to dig out a microphone first.

oh I can SO relate to this post! (nice sketch too) - and one of our cats has an extra toe on each foot meaning extra blood!

I find it easiest to hold them on their back like and baby and whip them in head first, taking them by surprise! by the time they've righted themselves we have the door shut :>)

That's similar to what I usually do, but I got distracted by the phone at the last minute and she was ready for me. :)
