Sunday Sketches . . .

Good Morning everyone... I've been messing about with my watercolours this week. No clear plan of what I wanted to do... these little ladies just popped onto the page and I just went with it...
This little "Miss Cross-Patch" popped straight onto the page and started yelling about this and that... at the moment she's just ranting, I have no idea what about so I just turned the page... I'll go back later when she's a bit calmer....

I sketched about ten little people and rubbed them out till "Miss No" popped up... and she's here to stay.. she reminds me of my girls when they were little and had discovered the word "NO"....

I was trying my hand at backgrounds.... not happy with these grassy things...but I do like my mushrooms at the bottom.... Missy here, wandered onto the pages looking for something but can't remember what... I told her to retrace her steps and hopefully that would jog her memory....  It's something that happens to me all the time.....  Watch out... us girlies are coming over to see everyone at Sunday Sketches....

Awwww, your little ladies are quite cute. I really wish I could find one specific "character" and run with it like you. Poo. :D Anyway, I love the little Miss Cross-Patch. LOL Too funny. And adore the "no means no". Adore her red coat and wellies. Hugs

Miss Cross Patch is my alter ego. I rant, I rave, at least in my mind. Very cute. Terah
