Sunday Sketches

Hello and thank you for joining us once again here at Sunday Sketches!

I've actually been quite busy this past week (alot of transitioning going on) but managed to throw a few things to paper for this week - this is one of them.  One thing I'd like to "master" is creating/painting anything that is glass.  I still get too much blue in the mix.  Grr.  :D  Hee

Anyway, I do hope that everyone is having a great weekend.  There's a lot of snow here, so I'm staying tucked away inside where it's warm and cozy!

  14. I am so happy, bouncy to have something to offer for Sunday Sketches this week. It has been so long since I've arted. I am excited :D

    Thank you as always for hosting this. You have inspired several of my better works just by holding this motivational challenge every week. Thank you so much.

    And yes, glass is a fascinating subject to draw. As is water.

    (a little hysterical having achieved exactly what I set out to do today)

  15. Hello! Is it ok if I show my illustrations rather than sketches every Saturday/Sunday? I wanted to go above and beyond with my works.

  16. Your illustrations always make me smile. And I know what you mean about the glass. I can't seem to get it right now matter how hard I try. :-)

    Stay warm!!

  17. I think that your style is changing slightly and I like it.
    Last night it snowed quite a lot here so we are staying indoors too.
    Keep warm Sophia. XXXX

  18. Glass is so hard! Great job.

    I finally sketched something!! It's been awhile. Great to be back.

  19. I want to go drink some tea now! Fun piece, love the tea cups!

  20. Looks like tea time! Fun sketch :)

    Maybe the glass needs a highlight?

  21. Loving your wonderful watercolor sketches! Happy Sunday Sketches

  22. I agree that painting glass is a challenge! Have a great week :)

  23. I think you did a lovely job on this! It looks great! Stay warm!


  24. Keep Warm my friend ;o) I love your art! Even if you think you put too much blue on the glass! Big Hugs ;o)

  25. I know what you mean about painting realistic looking glass - I fail miserably at it. =)
    But - I do love this painting - it strikes very close to me in terms of the subject, I am an loyal tea drinker myself. ;)

    As always - Blessings Sophia!

  26. That bit of loveliness deserves to be framed and displayed for all the world to see!
