Sunday Sketches...Back from a break!




Hello Dear Friends!

After a much needed break and a lot of rest, I am so happy to back participating with the
wonderful Sunday Sketches gang!
You can find more wonderful artists over at our hostess Sophia's place.

Can't wait to go around and visit all of your sketches and just soak up what you have all been doing artistically, and personally! :-)

This is a piece that I am working on for a friend of mine, not quite finished, but having lots of fun laying in the details now...
I really enjoyed this departure from my usual ladies, and it was definitely a challenge as I have not drawn fish before!  But lots of fun, cause I could make these Koi fish look just how I wanted.

So SMILES and Hugs to you ALL!!

Julia

Your artwork is B.A.!!! I love how you did the scales on the red koi fish. Such an interesting color palette my eyes were drawn to that one in particular.

Your fish are wonderful, I clicked to see them large and was amazed at the detail in this. Awesome!

welcome back! you came back at the right time, just after a blackout as some bloggers calls it - where Blogger wasn't working for a while and caused much confusion and frustration. great timing!

Hi Julia, I missed you and then the week you come back I am missing. I have had company and just to busy between that and jury duty to get anything done.

Love the fish and all the movement in the water is awesome. It is good to get out of our comfort zones once in a while.
