Spring is here! And with the beautiful days outside, it has been hard to draw inside lately! But this past Wednesday, I took my lunch hour outside on a picnic bench, and I was amazed how much art I got done. Hopefully I can keep this up. And on Friday, my dear art friend A and I sat and shared our sketchbooks with each other. Hers is so beautiful, I am humbled by it! She is doing portraits of people she knows. She drew me wearing a Renaissance dress. (Is anyone surprised? ) :) She is going to scan it when she is finished, and I'll post it here. In terms of my own sketchbook, I have been adding watercolor to my sketches. And what a difference it makes! The pictures really pop. I had one person comment (love you Mom!) that it was really hard to see the pencil drawings I posted last time. And she was right. Hopefully this way you can see these better.
Here are the first two pages again, this time with color.
What do you think? I will post more as I finish them....
My question for today (and I welcome facebook comments as well) is :
How do I create my own header for the blog? I want to incorporate my own drawings into my logo and header, but I don't have the blogging expertise to do that. Any advice?? Thanks!
