Sunday Sketches and Illustration Friday 'Ahead'
Well I'm very early for my Sunday sketches this week but i really wanted to post a page from my sketch book that I drew last night. I'm working on another mermaid painting, I seem to come back to mermaids whenever I feel like I'm having an artists block. I'm half way through my painting so I shall post it soon. I wanted to draw my ladies a little differently and I focused mostly on the lips which seemed to give her a whole new character! Anyway here are my sketches! Click on the Sunday Sketch bar at the side of my blog to see more Sunday sketches (you might have to wait until tomorrow though as I'm a bit early with mine :0) )
You may be wondering where this sketch would fit in with Illustration Friday's theme of Ahead? Well I feel at the moment like I need to step up my art a little and push myself more. I want to find a more polished look, to keep my style and keep painting whimsical pretty characters but I really wanted to move ahead with my art and not stay stuck in a rut. I really should do more sketching as it really helps me with ideas, I've just gotton so used to slapping paint on a canvas that I go straight to that sometimes. Anyway here are my new improved ladies, well I hope they are improved.
