An alto sax and a tenor sax.
Saxophones are hard to draw.
Black Micron .01 pen in itty bitty book.
Back of folding chair.
Bass (with hole from falling sculpture).
Bottom of bass.
Side of bass.Done with a micron .01 black pen in a 2-1/2" x 4" travel sketchbook at a jazz jam session.
It seems as though small paper is more inspiring than large paper. Large being 9" x 12".

The foreground is cracked up ice and snow. I wasn't quite sure how to depict it and so kind of doodled it. I'm not sure if I get tired half way through drawings or what, but I often do this with difficult areas.
Oh yeah - I'm very thankful I live in Maine.

Also I recalled Susan Hosken's question about symmetry with a light bulb she drew - should she leave it or re-draw it. That discussion helped me leave this drawing a bit skewed. In fact, it sort of seems as though the tide is coming in and pushing on it a bit....

If you look close you'll see I even drew the top of the sketchbook - it's at the bottom of the steering wheel.
My husband's comment on this drawing was "It needs more style". When asked to explain he said it would be better if I made everything too long or too short or skewed so the mistakes in detail wouldn't be so noticeable. Interesting comment. I'd been thinking there were too many details and I might have been better off concentrating on darks and lights. But, darks and lights work out better with charcoal and this was done with an extra fine point gel pen. Besides, the interior of my truck is black so it would have been darks and not-quite-so-dark darks.
So, no jazz jamming for me this weekend. Fortunately there's another one in a different place next weekend.

Additionally, a friend of mine challenged me to incorporate 'Just Do It' in all artistic endeavors for the month as a way of helping me overcome advanced procrastination. If you look carefully you'll find it on the box.
Drawn in pencil then watercolored.
