Peek inside my sketch book

Things have been pretty mellow around here lately.  We had the last of our holidays this weekend.  I'm working on sorting the toys and organizing everything again.  I'm a minimalist Capricorn so the mess and clutter is driving me nuts in our small space.  It's been so go go go that we all pretty much look like this lately...

 By the way, I finally took my camera off auto and the shot above is one of my first manual (not edited) photos! I think 2011 is going to bring a lot of creative growth for me.  So I thought I would share a bit of what's been coming out of my pencil lately.
 You ca see she's (above) had a few face lifts LOL. You can see all my erased lines.

 It's not always kids, I have fun drawing random things just as a release when I'm feeling anxious.

 I have the hardest time with hands, as you can see the little guy above still needs one. 


Also, the haircut fixed turned out great! I will work on getting some "after" photos taken so I can share! I should have done that right after the salon ugh! BUT I hate having my photo taken (have you noticed) so I've been putting it off.

  5. You are making me want to take out my sketch book again! It has been ages! Last time I took it out, I ended up committing to a month long project oil painting with all my spare time. Love the outcome, but fear taking it out again and having all my other projects fall by the wayside! Lol

    Gorgeous sketches, thanks for sharing! So personal.
