Sunday Sketches

Happy Sunday Sketches all!

You can find more Sunday sketches at
Had to add this sketch I did today on black construction paper with colored pencils because it's the first time I've ever tried this combination.
I like how she turned out!

Hello Julia,
this is sweetly beautiful. I love the movement and what feels like the celebration of life, to me.

Can tea inspire art? I hope so. My dear I was so excited to see your name come out of the hat of treats this morning. You have won the lovely Scottish Collection tea box. :) I shall email you to confirm address and get everything sorted.

Hi Julia,

I'm so sorry it took me this long to say thank you for following my blog. I've been having all sorts of computer problem which made me lost track of blogland activities. Anyway, it is a honor to have such talented fellow artist/writer to grace my little corner. THANK YOU!

And I'm enjoying your girls drawing. They are beautiful and full of life. I hope I could do the same like yours.

Cheers and have a wonderful day! :D

Hi Julia,

I LOVE the zen doodle - such pretty colours! The girl is charming too!

Oh my! Your girl's eyes twinkle so beautifully in the dark. I love her! And I see you have quite a knack with patterns too? Hhm, something I'm not very good at, I'm afraid. So bravo, Julia! :) ox
