Sunday Sketch

Medium: HB pencil

This is my boho girl I spent giggling with while mornings dawn came upon me a while back. Haven't had so much fun doing a sketch of an adult in a very long time since mainly focusing on things for children. Linking up to Blue Chair Diary's weekly Sunday Sketch get-together of sorts. Never done anything like this but Sophia has the cutest paintings ever and her writings inspire and move me.

Heard this song called You Take My Breath Away by Eva Cassidy. Such an amazing, beautiful voice.

Hello and WELCOME to Sunday Sketches. You'll find it fun, enjoyable and inspiring. The group is amazing. :)

Your sketch is amazing and I'm so looking forward to getting to know you and your art more. Great detail. Something I do lack in my own art at times, but hey, it's OK. Everyone has their own style. LOVE yours. Hugs :)

PS Thank you for your sweet comment about my art and writing.
