Bunny Girls and Sketches
hi everyone. In my last post I mentioned needing to work on lots more original folk art girls, so here is the first one, called Bunny Love. I used the sketch I created on my Easter post, and had fun with the background. This took many hours to complete. Originally I used blues, especially on the border, and I felt it just didn't look right, so I scraped on some gesso for texture, and re-did it. I'm much happier with the pink and creme as the main colors. She is now in my Etsy shop.
Tonight I will be working on something for mother's day.
For this weeks Sunday Sketch, I drew another big-eyed girl, are you all surprised, lol? This is my 5th week doing these sketches, thanks to Blue Chair Diary. Since I committed to join in, it has kept me on track.
A Page from My Sketchbook
Continuing my own little show and tell, here is a page from my sketchbook.
It's nice to see other artists starting to show pages from their sketchbook. Feel free to join it, it would be fun to see the sketches behind the art.
