Sunday Sketches



Happy Sunday Everyone!

You can find more Sunday Sketches at Sophia's place.

Here is a new gal I did this week - I can't decide if I like her more with the black background or without...What do you think?

I am also feeling she is unfinished and am considering doing a lower half to complete her, which will be different from my other ladies. May be a full skirt with petal detailing....

Let me know what you all think...I love all your comments!

Smiles and hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

I like her with a dark background - and yes, she is crying out for a petal skirt with perhaps some bud-like shoes. I think she is surely a dancer! You know I so love visiting all these lovely blogs week by week and watching everyone's art grow and evolve. These girls you are producing are just wonderful - keep up the great work!

I like the black background it really makes her stand out. A petal skirt would be gorgeous and I also think she looks like an exotic dancer.

Tammie said...

all the lovely detail is so thrilling. She is wonderfully sweet and lively. I look forward to seeing what you do with her, full body would be grand.

She's very pretty. I love the detail in her hair and the colors of her clothing reminded me of flowers. Beautiful.

I like the black background as well!! I think a skirt with more beautiful details would be exquisite! Beautiful work!!

Amalia K said...

And she does look lovely, Julia! I see her fitting very nicely in a fairy tale... a flower fairy princess, perhaps? :))

And thank you for leaving such kind sweet comments on my blog, you are always so kind to me. (hugs)

Hi Julia,
I think she is my favorite of all of the girls so far. I enlarged it on my computer, and just love her eyes. Great detail, there. and i really like the dark background, too.
I think she is lovely as is....what size is she? I like the whole flower theme....tulip sleeves and all...!!!
wonderful.
have a great sunday!!

She is so lovely!! I like both backgrounds, but she definitely stands out a little more with the black. I think a petal skirt would be wonderful! :) ~Lauren

I like the white background better but the black does bring her out more, love all the textures & details

CrowNology said...

I think you should sketch a little garden behind her and get rid of the extremes! :)
I think the idea os a skirt would be gorgeous (like her)...
Loving these ladies.

Oh, I think that I told you that the last one was my favorite - but, but - I have a new favorite now! I LOVE her and love the way she pops off of the black background. The colors are brilliant and I really like her refined updo.
I would love to see her with a body, but love her as she is too. Looking forward to seeing what you do,
Kristin xo

Debbie said...

i love her especially on the black background. I'm looking forward to seeing how you complete her dress.

Julia Christie said...

Thank you all for your sweet comments and ideas about how to finish this gal. I love all of them! I will be sure to post the finished piece if I decide to add to her.

Have a great week all!

This is my first time to your blog and I must say I am intrigued by your use of pattern. I vote black background and regardless of whether she tells you she wants more work or not- I think she's beautiful.
