T is for Trying

Over on the Alteredbooklover blog, Elizabeth does a weekly link-up called T is for Tuesday.  It involves “drink” posts of any kind–drawn, painted, photographed, tagged, etc.  I felt like sketching tonight so I gave it a shot.  my perspective is off quite a bit but you can still make out the Dasani water bottle (my drink) and an open journal, paint pallet and a brush in water.  Yep.  Gotta work on that perspective some…  🙂

  1. Jill, thank you for joining us for T this Tuesday. I hope you will join us again, too. I can’t draw anything, so your drawings are great. It’s hard to draw through water, and I think you did a good job of showing the distorted view through the glass. BTW, although I adore the Dasani bottle you drew, I thought your glass with the paintbrush in the water would have been a great example of a T post, too. It was a glass and it held liquid, so it qualified. So you actually had TWO examples of drink related art today.

    Thank you for sharing this nice sketch and your “drinks” with us for T this Tuesday. And thanks for joining in.

  2. Lovely to see you here at Elizabeth’s.
    I love your drawing. I’ve recently started to learn (ahem, very recently… like, I’ve had one lesson!).
    Have a good week,
    Lisca (from Spain)

    • Thank you, Lisca! I’m not very skilled but I just keep trying and things tend to slowly improve. I wish it were a much faster process but alas, it is a you-MUST-invest-the-time endeavor. There are no short cuts. Sooooooo, I just keep trying and S-L-O-W-L-Y things change. Keep at it, Lisca, and you will most definitely succeed. 🙂

  3. this is super Jill! I find perspective to be one of the most difficult things to get. That and capturing clear glass. Happy T day!

  4. Hello and Happy T Day! I think your drawing is very good, much better then I could do. Keep drawing and enjoying it and sharing it with us. This was a creative way to share your beverage/cup with us for your first week too. Take care and have a good week.

    • I used to do well with perspective when doing architectural drawings for school but it isn’t quite as clear or obvious when you aren’t just drawing street/building scenes! LOL Thanks for the sweet comment, Dianne! 🙂

  5. Welcome to the T-gang Jill, glad you joined us.
    Your water color is great, perspective can be a challenge. I always have to sketch it out in pencil first or I have no perspective….LOL
    Happy T-day

  6. Lovely to meet you at TSFT Jill 🙂 I think your painting is great! I’m very much a beginner, and appreciate what everyone shares 🙂 Happy, Happy T Day 😀 😀

    • Thank you! I’m very much a beginner with both my sketching AND my watercolor but I’m having a great time any way. 🙂 I find this environment a wonderful place to find inspiration and encouragement to keep trying.
