Sunday Sketch and a page from my Sketchbook

 hi everyone. I am a bit late with my sketch today.  I did three other sketches but didn't like any of them, so I finally did one of my big-eyed girls faces.
I glued a butterfly on her hair for fun.
Please check out Blue Chair Diary's blog for details about Sunday sketches as well as other participating artists.


A Page from my Sketchbook

I enjoy showing a random page from my sketchbook weekly. A lot of them are in pencil and faded so it's sometimes tough to pick one out.  Here I was trying to create new characters for small folk art paintings. A lot of my pages are filled with written ideas, color ideas, titles, and lots of random stuff. They wouldn't make much sense to anyone else.
Coming soon (hopefully) is a painting of my bunny girl which I drew  last week....
Are any of you artists interested in sharing one of your sketchbook pages? I'd love to see how you  work.

I love her I love her I love her!
Love the mouth and the eyes are awesome! Thanks for sharing your frustrations...I had the same thing happen to me this week - went through several sheets before settling on one I liked.

Have a great Sunday!

she looks kind of sad, I do like how you draw eyes, they have so many personality to them

Hi Pink! I LOVE your big-eyed girls, they rock! Like Lissa said they do have tons of personality and I love how you pay such special attention to the details like those lips. The butterfly is a cute addition too.

Love your sketchbook great ideas! I tend to do more one-page sketches, but if I get good group of them going I'll be sure to share.

Thanks for your kind and encouraging comments, I so appreciate it!

Happy SS!

LOVE the big eyes. The butterfly is a great addition, too.

I draw and sketch with pencils, pens and even Sharpie's sometimes...when I feel I need to draw a quick sketch I pick up what is closest...It's fun to peek at other artist's sketch books...!
Happy Sunday, Heather

Your little girl is amazing!! Her personality shines through even though I perceive her as somewhat sad...
She is a beauty!! Nice to meet you and now am off to see more sketches!

Hi Pink, thanks for stopping by. I love your big eyed girl and the butterfly just makes it pop. You have a very fun sketch book. Most of mine I can't show as they are what I call thumbnail sketches, very small and hard to scan or photo.

Sophia said...

I like your idea of showing a page from your sketch book. I noticed one or two other folks doing the same thing. I will try to remember to show one of mine next week, but don't hold me to it! :D hee

And I like this sketch. I love how you were able to make her right eye "glisten". As I have said to others, I struggle with drawing eyes and hands. Ugh.

Happy Sunday! :)

WrightStuff - the red smudge was there to show the randomness of life, and how we live in a fragmented state of mind, punctuated by anomalies of.....haha!! I'm just being silly :-D

The smudge was just me testing a watercolor pencil, lol!
