After I painted our kitchen wall with chalkboard paint, it was time to get ready for the surprise 40th birthday party we are hosting tomorrow. I attempted to draw Yankee Stadium the new drawing surface. I didn’t get very far Wednesday night. I made a few mistakes, erased them, and ended up here:
Last night, I had some work to do. I wanted it to be more personalized, so I decided to include the guest of honor in the drawing. There’s too much pressure to get somebody’s face perfectly accurate when drawing a portrait, and I was too pressed for time.
I took the easy way out (hey! At least I admit it!). I drew him in the stands wearing a jersey with the number 40 on the back of it (he’s turning 40). The birthday boy has a pretty distinct hairstyle (or lack-there-of). His head is completely shaved. I wrote his nickname on the back of the jersey.
I tried to make the grass appear like the signature checkerboard lawn at the baseball field, but didn’t really pull it off. But at least it’s green & it resembles grass, LOL!
It’s still not completed. I have to add the bleacher seats and some fans. I guess this post is going to have to be a 3-parter. Sorry guys.
What birthday message should I write on the scoreboard? Any suggestions?
