Finished sketches and new one!

Good morning and welcome to another Sunday Sketches hosted by Sophia!(see link to the right) Below are 2 sketches that I colored with pencil and paint. The one was added to my art journal, but I haven't decided what to do with the 2nd one.


I've been trying to improve my side view, so here is one of my practice sketches.

The hand still needs a little work. Another area I struggle with, but it's fun to be challenged.
We had a good service at church today about courage, and it reminded me that we are in a battle everyday, but God has already won the battle. We just need to trust Him.
I hope you are enjoying a restful day!

Great sketches! Loved seeing all three!

I really like seeing the progress of your art, Debbie. That first one is quite cute. :) And yes, we all need a little courage - empowered in God, living a right life the best we can. Not always easy. It is a day by day battle. Hugs

The first image is my favorite with the hat. I'm not sure but it looks like a collage. If not, great effect with the colors.

That's neat how you tore around the lovely lady in the hat and painted the background.

Heather said...

I was checking out your other drawings as well, and the colours are lovely in all of them. Also, they seem so fresh, like that of a little child's; they are extremely beautiful, but not complicated, and not like any others'. :)

Great drawings Debbie...it looks to me as though you are meeting your challenges, I see so much growth in your work!!!

Thank you for the bit about "courage"...I'm feeling as though I need that reminder right now!!!
Enjoy the day.
