Sunday Sketches – Ooh La La!

Sunday Sketches Header - transparent background larger version pngI’ve been very up and down during last couple of weeks, mainly due to being ill – twice – which means my normal routine goes out of kilter. Thankfully I’m just getting back on track as I hate it when I have no energy for anything.

This weeks Sunday Sketches entry is my Parisian girl. She started off as a quick doodle on a scrap bit of paper when I should have been doing other things, so I then decided to try and bring her to life.


In all honesty I prefer the little doodle as in the painted illustration she ended up looking a bit stern and serious. Hence why I love just playing about as my work ends up being free-er than when I sit down and make a conscious effort to paint something. I will have to think up a little mantra to say to myself when I work on something I want to turn out well……to stop me from being all tense!



I hope you all have a lovely Sunday. It’s a crisp sunny day here today….a nice day to go for a walk and take in the fresh air.

Please do pop on over to Alexandra’s blog to check out the other entries.

    I love your French girl! She looks charming and I love both versions of her. It’s so interesting to see the difference between your lovely sketch on scrap paper and the sketchbook girl. I love them both! The colors you used are perfect!

    I like both pieces so much. Your girl does look a bit different in color vs the initial sketch, but that is just fine. The colors are so beautiful and so Frenchie. I know you must have had a good time working on these. genie
