Sketching whilst watching tv

Here are some sketches I've done whilst watching TV, or rather, only half watching.  If I have a magazine to hand at the same time that helps as it becomes my source, other times it may be something on a programme I'm watching, but what ever, it's a very relaxing occupation with no pressure to produce something exact, just scribble it down and enjoy....
















I did all these sketches using my Staedtler mechanical pencil.





Especially useful for travelling light, of course, and although I have loads of graphite pencils, I get on really well using this Staedtler, it gives a crisp line all the time.

  1. I love the sketches! It is so difficult to sketch animals, I love the bunny and the cow! Recently I bought a similar pencil like yours and I like to use it too!

    1. Thanks Judy. I'm really liking this pencil, my old mechanical one broke so I had to replace it and so glad I did.

  2. OK, I do not see much trivia here;-) The first bunny especially translates very well with but few lines/shades. Maybe it is the mechanical pencil - crisp lines and fun sketches.

    1. When I've compared the graphite pencils with the mechanical, it really is the mechanical one that wins. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Ann,
    I also like to relax and draw or paint while I'm watching- or rather-listening to something on the television. It helps me to unwind after a day at work. I have always used General's Woodless Graphite Pencils, but you've peaked my interest and I will give Staedtler Mechanical Pencils a try!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful sketches!!!

    1. Thanks Bel, glad you like the sketches, even though they were just doodlings. If you get to buy a mechanical pencil you'll find them useful as there is no need to take a sharpener with you everywhere plus they have an eraser in the top...win win.
