4 new sketches


From two of my sketchbook exchange groups.

1-3 in Jim Doran's Book, 4 in Ammon's book. All by me, Mary Stebbins Taitt.

1. Fair winds, especially for Jim Doran
2. Grackle
3. Magnifying glasses
4. The Mirror Ball

All of these were done with my 3 new "technical pens," two old ones form my father and one new one my husband got me from Poland. I am not very good with them. I have a lot to learn.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, and bon voyage to the first traveller.

I like the magnifying glasses and the grackle the best. Keep at it with the technical pens, Mary!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

WOW! Thanks so much! :-D

Jim, I'm so glad you like them. For some reason, I kept wanting to make pictures for you! Because we have so many interests in common.

Our thanksgiving was good, thanks Happy Helene!

I will play more with the technicals pens. The old ones are particularly hard to use because you have to hold them vertical and it feels awkward to me. My hand is less steady that way, and it's not all that steady to begin with.

Oh, I like the magnifying glass a lot!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

he he he; a naturalist's journal sort of thing, thanks, Berry bird.

Thanks, Andrea, I had fun with it and may do more of them! :-D
