Sunday Sketches


Another week - another sketch. And another fairy on a mushroom. I like drawing the bodies - but not so much the faces...mostly noses. I do not like noses. It is a good thing that my style is not one that requires reality. If I want realistic looking artwork, I'll get a photo :P Besides, it is so hard to get fairies to sit still and pose.

Getting back to drawing has been so good for me. I still need to do it more...and to get the paints back out. But for now, the pencils are great! I am so glad I tripped across the link party at Blue Chair Diary. Thanks Sophia :)

I like your fairy! It's nice that she sat still for you...
I can draw cartoon stick figures - that's about all!

Marlene said...

She is very pretty. Darn those fairies for moving around so much.

She's very pretty. I like that she's sitting on the mushroom and her pose. I agree, don't like drawing noses, either! have a good sunday!

Smile. Fairies don't sit still.

I like the polka dot mushroom, not much into drawing fairies but I imagine them to be hard to capture

have a great day.

Lovely figure, I really like her leg (if that doesn't sound too weird), like the mushroom too!

Helen said...

Lovely! And I love the mushroom too!

Christine said...

cute little fairy on a mushroom!

Deanna said...

I'm the dame way! Faces are so hard. What's weird is I can do portraits but when it comes to more whimsical looks I can never get them right! I think your fairy is quite lovely!

I love the composition. Maybe your fairy should turn her head so you can't see her face and then no worries.
