I don't particularly like drawing, but I think I should really get my backside in gear and draw/sketch more regularly. I have been very, very lazy of late when it comes to sketching/ drawing.  I do have some desk pad "doodles" that I sit and do while I am in the office (bleh), but I will rather not show them to anybody...they are a bit, uhm...doodely to show. :-) Most of my sketches/ drawings are either as a painting reference or exercise in a particular area.

Anyway...these are some of the sketches that are in my sketchbook. Tell me what you think!

Your sketches are wonderful, Elmarie... you've got skills!! I especially like the shading on the middle pear (3rd image). Keep up the good work! :)
