Happy New Year!

Welcome (rather belatedly) to 2007.

As we are imminently moving house, things have been rather hectic but I’ve finally managed to squeeze in a drawing.  The EDM challenge (one of them) was to draw a gift.  This is a candle holder, and was a gift from my sister and brother (not)-in-law.  I’ve drawn it using my new Staedtler Mars Pencils (a gift from my Gran) and they are comfortingly smooth and silky to use.  They hold their point too.  I shall enjoy using them.


Today the letting agent confirmed that all our paperwork is in order, so we are definitely moving on the 19th.  Things may go a little quiet round here.

  1. Carole,
    What a unique sketch, I feel the illusion of lips in the way the holders are drawn. This kind of sketching is one of my favorites, in the evening here when the sun has gone down, and dusk is beginning, the woods across the street looks like a pen and ink sketch. Congratulations! What a talent.
    Happy New year.

  2. Hi Connie,
    They do look like lips, don’t they? 🙂 I know what you mean about woods in low sun or dusk. Ink and wash are ideal for that sort of scene.

  3. BEAUTIFULLY DONE!! The shadow on the wall is excellent, too! A gift drawn and done by a gift of pencils — what a nice tie-in!

  4. Love the drawing Carole, particularly the shadow and the base of the candle holder.Best of luck for 19th, hope it all goes smooooothly x
