Sunday Sketches



Happy Sunday Sketches Everyone!
The sun is out and the birds are singing!
For more great artistic expression, head over to Sophia's place at http://bluechairdiary.blogspot.com/.
This is a piece I have been working on this week which was intended to be a mother looking down on her baby cradled in her arms, but my 1-1/2 yr old scribbled on the space over her head so I cropped her and may just call her finished as is. I was trying to practice a different style of eyes here, downcast, and I think it turned out ok. I guess I'm into the redheads too cause my hand wandered over to the orange and red pencil section.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
Off to check out more great Sunday ART!

hello Julia,
I was wandering in East Glacier the past couple days, so just getting around to my sketch visits. I love her hair, so feminine and wonderful. Her downcast eyes are just that, they deliver your glance perfectly. On top of that, she is so lovely.
