happy sketch night

pve design sketches from sketch night at the SOCIETY OF ILLUSTRATORS
I went here last night. My sketch book needed to get happy.
Three hours of sketching, live music and models.
If my sketchbook were any happier, it would scream.
Thanks to this artful gal for giving me the heads up.
How do you make time for happy hours for you?

Hmmm, may be rethinking my new header...just teasing ; )
Just looking at beautiful things makes me happy. I can not even imagine having your talent and ability to bring them to life so beautifully. Being able to paint and being multi-lingual, those would be my custom orders if God were accepting them. XXOO

These sketches are great! I clicked over to the beautiful websites from the links in your post. I was lost in Bri's for quite awhile, admiring her art and her words. And I love love love Society of Illustrators' advertisement of the event! You always take me places I'd never think to go on my own!

Kim said...

Fun sketches Patricia! I have not sketched models at studio for some time! I have fun in the evening sketching with colored pencils, pastels and markers if I am not painting.

Kwana said...

Yay, good for you! I have not done anything like that since college. I'm so happy your sketch book is happy. It sounds like a blast. I need to give myself a happy artist day soon.

Purple Flowers said...

I am so glad you were lost in the happiness. The sketches are lovely.

Beautiful sketches....happiness in any form is good!

What a wonderful way to find happiness: a new muse. Your work is lovely and joyful. I am glad you are taking this time for yourself.

To find my own bit of happiness, I go to the garden or read. I do think it is important to renew ourselves even in small doses, to choose happiness even in small moments.

Liason said...

gorgeous. these sketches rock. i want a big print of them to hang in my bathroom! ~L

little augury said...

Wow Patricia- these are so refreshing and unusual, definitely see your hand-but with a little edge, love the elongations and edges. go girl. la

A Day That is Dessert said...

These are so fun - inspired!!

Bri Hermanson said...

These are just lovely - what great attitude they have!

I'm so glad that you made it to the Society and had such a great time. I love the evenings there. It's a place that really can recharge the soul. Coming away with pages of drawings always feels like icing on a already decadent cake.

Thank you for the link. How very kind of you.

pve design said...

Bri-
Thanks again for letting me know. I definitely plan on going back! Were you there?!

Mindy Lockard Etiquette said...

Wow you just took me back 16 years (gulp!) to life drawing in design school. It was my favorite class. The human body is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing/baring your sketches with us!

Best, Mindy

Debra said...

PvE~ Lovely as ever. Just a very quick hi and thinking of you. Right now I can think of an interesting PvE illustration... Mimi- rocking and keeping track of all of the balls in the air...Love to you.

My happy hours are spent floating in the water at the pool or beach. Thanks so much for your sweet comment! XO

Carey said...

Wonderful, wonderful sketches! They have your unmistakable mark(s). I took Life Drawing in Spring of 2003(live models 2x/week), but most of my work looks like drawings of aliens. I surely appreciate your beautiful work. Hope it's not taboo to say this, but I like your solution for the triangle coiffure- a quick circle!

Heather van Breda said...

Lovely sketches. Takes me back to college drawing class... which then reminds of the time we had to draw a guy that I'm pretty sure had a Santa Claus gig during the holidays. The drawings were not nearly so elegant as these!

jae said...

i absolutely love these...so alive.

Bradford said...

these make me long for the days when i used to be able to draw.

hope to see more....
