Sunday Sketches

>> Sunday, March 13, 2011

I don't have much of a sketch this week as I have not been feeling too good the last two days.  I'm also still trying to cope with losing my boyfriend as today is exactly one month since he passed.  I did try to color her with my watercolor pencils but it was not a good thing.  The paper I used was too thin and buckled so I started over and decided to just leave her alone for now.  I'm thinking of bringing her into Illustrator and playing with adding some color but that will have to wait for another day. 

Hope you all are having a good weekend.  Be sure to check out all of the lovely Sunday Sketches hosted by Sophia of Blue Chair Diary.

"not much of a sketch" :) yeah right. I love it!! I enjoy fashion and pictures that are like that. I studied fashion design in high school, pretty fun and.... well.. so far not very practical/useable haha. Anyway, hope you feel good soon!

I hope art continues to heal your wounds. Take care. There is nothing wrong with this sketch by the way - she is so elegant!

Deanna, My deepest sympathies to you. I hope your art and time will give you comfort.

I love the sketch. It is very vintage looking.

Heather March 13, 2011 at 7:59 AM  

She's very well done! Good to have your art to keep you going. I am sending positive and happy thoughts to you - take it one day at a time...xo

Good Morning Deanna,

I'm so sorry about your boyfriend - hugs to you.

This is a wonderful sketch (don't sell yourself short)!

I look forward to seeing what you do with her in Illustrator (I wish I were better with computer programs).


p.s. Does your printer accept watercolor paper? If so, you could print her out on it and give the watercolors another shot...

She is beautiful and as the others said, elegant. So sorry for your loss, I can only imagine how hard it must be, hugs to you.

She seems to be capturing your emotions - sad but standing tall! Very elegant - I love her just as she is. I hope you feel better soon and find some comfort for your loss as you create.

Christine March 13, 2011 at 9:59 AM  

I thought the same as Sinderella, that the sketch captures your emotions. Sorry for your loss.

This is sooo lovely!!! I did not know about your boyfriend. I am so sorry to hear that!

A very good sketch; you have a lot of talent.

I've only just discovered your blog via IA (& am glad to see you're signed up for paint party friday) & have been enjoying a look around. I'm very sorry to learn that you lost your boyfriend. I find creativity helps me through a lot of things and so I hope that it offers you comfort too. I Note on an earlier post that you mention joining challenges. If you've not already discovered it www.creativeeveryday.com is a wonderful community run by a really lovely lady called Leah. Joining them last year had a very positive effect on me and offered inspirational support.

Great to 'meet' you.
Kat :-)

Sorry to hear about your boyfriend, stay strong. Lovely sketch.

Julia Christie March 13, 2011 at 2:39 PM  

Very sorry to hear about your boyfriend - I cannot imagine such a loss - will it help to focus on the postive memories you have of him, how much he loved and encouraged your art? This sketch is really a wonderful start and I hope you do finish it! Be sure to share with us if you do.

Hugs and warm thoughts sent your way...
you are an incredible artist!


Sophia March 13, 2011 at 6:51 PM  

I think she is absolutely lovely, Deanna. So elegant. Just like you! Hang in there and please let me know if there is anything I can do. LOTS of hugs to you.
