Sunday Sketches


Happy Sunday everyone!

You can find more great Sunday Sketches over at our hostess Sophia's place.
This is my second attempt at drawing a baby. She is an adorable little gem of a friend of mine. Babies are the most difficult for me to draw.
It would be great to take a class just about drawing children.
I think if I really wanted to do a serious portrait of her, I would use the grid technique, as that has worked really well for me in the past.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and that you are enjoying this beautiful summer we are having! SMILES!

Oh, such a lovely drawing of a darling little baby! You know, I've tried using the grid technique and always failed miserably at the end... Maybe I'm just not cut out for it!

Thank you for your kind words on my latest post, it made me feel better that there are people who truly understand. (HUGS)

She is beautiful, great job. I like the grid technique when I want to get really serious.

This is a great sketch julia!

I think she turned out great considering you didn't use the grid method. Most of my larger pieces are done by the grid method. I don't think I'm ready to try a portrait without it. LOL.

I love babies - and they are difficult to sketch i think! This turned out great! Thank you!

Julia, you did a fabulous job! If that was difficult for you to draw, it sure doesn't appear that way! It's just lovely.

Imagine what you can accomplish if you take art lessons about drawing babies.
I'm sure your friend would love your sketch.
