Monday June 30th, 2008 - Miss Doodle's Secretary highly sceptical

Today we let you have a look into the sketchbook. This is Miss Doodle's secretary trying to sketch herself in a highly sceptical mood, together with some Doodle Soup Cans and Miss Doodle taking three hurdles (upper left corner). As the expression on the secretary's face shows, she is not happy with the selfportraits, she finds that she is not so angular, and she finds that these sketches are too flattering. Well, we don't give a dime, cause this is about drawing essentials:)

Ah, you are so generous in allowing us the peek into your sketchbook! I think the self-portraits are fabulous and show a very focused person.

If you want to practice on a softer model...I can come over for a visit! :) I am definitely much softer these days.

Thanks so much for sharing such a special part of you.

Great sketchbook page. I love it that Miss Doodle is still jumping her hurdles. Her secretary looks sort of grumpy here to me. Really it's good to see her in a mood. She looks a lot like I felt yesterday. Every time I read about Doodle soup I think I'm listening to a person with a cold saying "noodle." Take care, Suki

Cestandrea said...

Cris, I can confirm that summer (or at least heat) makes SOME people grumpy, the secretaries husband being one of them...

Cestandrea said...

Ms. Doodle (and her secretary) appear to be having some stressful encounters lately. Perhaps Ms. Doodle (and her secretary) need to do some camping "under a billion stars". Very good for the soul -- I promise.
