Sunday Sketches from Mother’s Day Weekend

Sunday SketchesOnce again I’ve been arting, but not specifically for Sunday Sketches, but I do want to share the work I have been doing.

This week I started two new challenges 29 Faces and the Monthly Painters Challenge. I can’t reveal the work I have been doing for the Monthly Painters Challenge, but I can say that I’m having a great deal of fun. Come back here in two days time to see what I’ve been doing in that department (with the dearest hope that I manage to finish it since it has been interrupted by a migraine which took a chunk of my time available to work on it ::grrr:: )

Other than those two pieces I’ve also made some progress on my daughter’s mermaid painting, a painting I started here in Sunday Sketches quite some weeks ago now. It is slowly getting there as many wonderful peeps from Paint Party Friday saw a couple of days ago (thanks so much to all of you for your lovely comments, they mean a lot to me – I’ll be cruising around your blogs in the next couple of days to return the favour).

So the two sketches I am submitting this week are my mermaid painting…

Mermaid still a work in progressMermaid still in progress – details here

And two of my sketches for 29 faces, both of which I’m quite proud of as I used no reference material and all of the facial structure etc came directly from my brain – I found out I knew more about faces than I thought. I was also really happy with their expressions, a factor I often have trouble with – for more details, please view this post.

Just breathe


Apologies to those of you who might have seen these before in the last few days, but I haven’t had time to do anything else that I can show here. I promise new stuff in the next two days.

And don’t forget to cruise around the blogs at Sunday Sketches to see some fantabulous stuff.

Best wishes,
