Sunday Sketches - Brittany


This week I have had hardly any time for art.  We are still getting ready to move and signing on our new house tomorrow!  Very excited. 

So this is a 'just started' sketch of my oldest daughter, Brittany, as she looked when she was much younger.
Still enjoying these 'Zen Portraits' a lot and I find them very relaxing.

Hope all of you are having a relaxing and wonderful Sunday!

Smiles
Please head over to Sophia's place to enjoy more great Sunday Sketches.

OOOOOOHHHH! This is my favorite so far. I don't know why. I think it is the eyes. They are very lively. Good luck on the closing. I read your tale about the house search and I sympathize. Hope all goes well. Enjoy your Sunday and have a great week! Tsup!

Good luck on your house! Hope everything goes super smoothly from now on!

Great start! Looking forward to seeing more progress!

hello dear lady,
So lovely to see this portrait in action. It would make a very interesting piece if it were finished at this point, it would beg to know what the textured parts mean against the blank of open spaces.
Still I know it will be charming and I bet we will get to enjoy it when it is finished. Wishing you a graceful move.
