I've missed my sunday sketches group the past couple weeks - summer is starting to get busy and I was out of town last weekend, but I'm so happy to be back and can't wait to see what you have all been up to this week! For more great Sunday Sketches, head over to Sophia's place and say hello!
Above is the piece I shared earlier this week with more color and detailing completed...I am in LOVE! I call this piece 'Water Sprite' and she is inspired by the magical weekend I had touring some really beautiful gardens in Oregon recently ~ I fell in love with all the incredibly lovely water features sprinkled throughout too, and this idea was born! Started a rough sketch while away, and got right to work when I got home.
Close up of her face - I initially found it difficult to draw her with her eyes closed, as eyes are such a big part of the pieces I normally do...Maybe that is why I chose to make her hair and headscarf so vibrant!
This shows some of the detailing up close and all the blank spaces just waiting to be filled in with lots of color and detail - I just love this stage - everything just FLOWS! This is another large piece (12.5" X 24") and so takes much longer to complete, but oh is it a rewarding journey!
I hope you are having a peaceful week, full of LOVE and JOY, and if you aren't, I would be happy to send some of both of these your way along with a
S M I L E!
