Sunday Sketches


Happy Sunday Everyone!

This is a work in progress that I am having a lot of fun with.  I am thinking about toile as I pattern the background, headpiece, and some of the flowers...I love black toile especially, so this is a fun experiment for me.  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and a restful, creative Sunday.
You can find more fabulous art over at Blue Chair Diary.  Be sure to say Hi to our lovely hostess Sophia - a very talented and interesting woman.

Smiles to All :-)

Glorious detail. I am such a huge fan of line art and you create such a wonderful balance here, even as an unfinished WIP. I love the jolt of green against the black and red.

Everything about this is lovely. But her eyes draw me in, so beautiful! I can tell you have fun creating these... so lovely and lively.

I love the contrast of the colors with the blank ink. Such dramatic effect.

How are you dearest Julia? Have you unpacked? Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Lovely piece.

Sophia said...

Ohhhh, I absolutely LOVE her red hair and the splashes of colour you put in there...just a tad and it's perfect! I'm pretty impressed STILL at the detail of your artwork. I'm not sure that I could ever be that patient and admire what you do.

Big hugs. PS Sitting down for a hot cuppa now...care to join me? :) Love you.

Heather said...
