Some sketches I did while camping. I am trying to work on figures, which are harder for me. For many years, I painted nothing but flowers. In the last couple of years, I have been branching out more and trying other subjects. People are a challenge that I enjoy. I still do not have them as I want, but I figure it is a start. If I don't keep at it, I will never get better. The figures were from photos and the daffodils from memory. usually can draw from memory after I have drawn the subject many times. Over the years, I think I have drawn and painted 10 to 12 paintings of daffodils as the subject.

Watercolors by Susan Roper said...

These are very nice drawings, I especially like the second one with the women. Maybe a watercolor of these two? Even though this one is mainly a line drawing I can see your handling of the modeling shading would make for a great painting.
