Blue Chair Diary's weekly sketches. Do check out Sophia's blog for more Sunday Sketches.
The above sketch is an idea I have for my next folk art painting featuring a mother and her little boy and girl. Do you think the boy looks ok? I hope to start it tonight. I wish there was a workshop for folk art paintings, because I find them the most difficult to do. Maybe because I can't paint loosely? Come on folk artists! give up your secrets, lol!
A Page from my Sketchbook
This is almost becoming a regular thing here, I'm on week 6 I think...It's not always easy to find a page to show you, since most of them are in pencil and very light. Also, as you can see with this one, it's filled with tiny unfinished scribbles, haha! so now you know how my mind works. It's pure chaos in there sometimes. I sure envy those artists with beautiful, neatly drawn sketchbook pages, filled with lovely colors. Not mine, I don't think there is a single page in the 4 or 5 sketchbooks I have that actually has color. Don't ask my why, since I probably have every brand of colored pencils known to man...and they just sit in their packages, lonely, wondering when this silly little artist will finally pull them out and use them.
thanks for reading! I'm off to get some work done :-D
