Cabin Fever

Weeks of rain with almost no break. A 3-day weekend and no way to get out without getting wet. Perfect formula for cabin fever? Luckily, I can draw (and redraw) my family. And since they’ve all long since decided I am terrible at drawing likenesses of them, I don’t even have to try. Which takes half the worry out of drawing people.

This weekend’s sketches are of my nieces, my kids and the cats lounging, chatting, reading, and maybe, just maybe, studying.







All sketched in pen and pencil in my Fabriano Artist’s Journal.
