Sunday sketches

This is a quickie doodle that I did in front of the tele this evening. I feel like I've been neglecting my drawing lately as I've been consumed by my jewellery making. So I really needed to sit down and sketch as I was feeling a bit rusty, its amazing how quickly that can happen when you've had a bit of a break from drawing.
I also approached this face differently. Normally I draw the shape of the face first then fill in the features but today I started with the eyes and did the shape of the face after the features and I feel like she really took on a personality of her own. I went against everything I've ever been taught in a drawing class, hehehe I'm such a rebel! ;0)
The words read 'She didn't care if it rained, she was happy and that was all that mattered.....'
Hope you are all having a great weekend!

She's lovely, none the worse for being birthed in rebellion. Don't neglect your drawing, Nicola.

Love this Nicola! I know what you mean about feeling rusty! I have been doing more painting lately and then sometimes when I go back to it I feel like I am learning all over again!

Great work! :)

I love how art takes on a personality of its own. Like the spirit is asking us to bring it to life. She is lovely~

Love the little details that you put in Nic like the strap over her shoulder and the raindrops falling on her head. Lovely xxx

Heather said...

She is so cute. Very nice! I know what you mean about not being able to take the time. Busy time of year!

i think her attitude is reflected in how you approached the pic as well...sometimes you just got to throw the rules out the window and have fun...

She does have a personality, she is lovely and you can see her happiness in your sketch.

Lenora said...

is she a day dreamer or just satisfied in life? the words speak the latter - maybe she is both

I love the thoughtful tilt of her head... very expressive.
