Illustration Friday: Climbing

I did this tiny oil sketch, with my no-drawing method, for Illustration Friday this morning, as the topic is 'climbing.' It isn't a great sketch, but it was a good warm-up for the painting I want to do today. It is of my grandson climbing some playground equipment at the park near our house last summer. The sketch is about 5"x5" and is oil on canvas.

I love your sketches, but not being a painter, don't understand how you can do that. They're really wonderful.

I enjoy reading your blog. I appreciate your comments on New Beginnings. As a fairly new Tapestry weaver I always experience feelings of doubt and anxiety when I start a project. Another new project of mine is my Blog. Please add it to your list.
