Sunday Sketches . . .

Good morning everyone,

Here is my entry for Sophia's Sunday Sketches...if you haven't already...pop over and see what the others have been up to this Sunday...and if your here from SS...then, hope you like what I've done...
If your here for the first time...most of my girlie's have stripy woolly tights... Well....
I have been wondering how I was going to deal with stripy woolly tights once the summer gets here..a girl has to think about these things...very important for planning ones whole summer wardrobe...you can't very well go out on a hot summers day in stripy woolly tights..SO... ta da....summer stripy sun dresses...I wanted to keep the stripes see....

I was inspired by the grassy things that I saw the other day by the Estuary post down below...and the prickly teasel things growing there...also the seed heads in my Mum's garden... for awhile now I have wanted to make my backgrounds and foregrounds more interesting...I love plants and I want to incorporate them in my sketches, but in an abstract fun way...basically coz I can't draw flowers and plants for toffee...so these are my first attempts...looks like this could be where fairies shop for their shower heads.....

Hopefully will have some teasel sketches soon......ouch...such prickly little things....

Adorable! Love the stripes and so glad they found a way to keep them in their wardrobes for Summer. I love those big seed head and they do resemble shower heads.

I think your shower heads have a very organic, stylized feel to them- I dig 'em! Thumbs up on the stripes, I love them!

Tammie said...
