Sunday Sketches...

Well, I finished a few things this week.
 For the Weekly Diva's Challenge I finished this Calvary zentangle. I thought it would be cool to design something with an eternal message out of the great zentangle patterns. I'm thinking the bottom is a little out of scale with the rest. I should have made the cockels 'n' mussels pattern a little smaller perhaps. But I still like it. The challenge was to design something for Earth Day and I was thinking, "There's no better message on earth!"

I also finished this watercolor of a rose for the Rookie Painter Challenge.

And for my hilarious finish, I did two portraits from photographs. These were for the Drawing Lab lessons at Painting Myself Pretty. We were to draw the portraits with our non-dominant hand, in my case my left hand. The first one was "sketchy", but my hand began cooperating a little more on the second one. It was a fun experiment!



I'm off to Sunday Sketches to see what everyone else has drawn this week! :D

Shalom and happy sketching etc.!

  4. WOw... I don't think I could even stay on the paper with my left hand! Amazing.
    I LOVE the Calvary Picture it is most original and looks as though the whole land has burst into flower.

    1. Thank you so much! I changed the heading on my sidebar because I think it was deceptive. The beautiful children you see there are my grandchildren. :D I'm so proud of them! Audrey and her parents live with us, so we're almost like parents! The other two live far away in Texas and we wish we could hold them and play with them! :*)

  10. Great examples of work. The rose in particular stood out as it certainly doesn't look as if it's painted by a rookie!!
