Drawing Faces with Sharpies

I took an on-line mini-course with Alisa Burke recently called Portrait Play.  I took the course for inspiration rather than to learn anything, and every time I watch one of the videos I do get inspired to draw faces!  Here are the latest ones from my sketchbook.  I used a bold Sharpie to make the drawing, and then added a bit of watercolor.

This dude is pretty cool, don't you think?

A Little Bird Told Me

The songbirds were frolicking in the sunshine today, singing as they scattered snow from the heavily laden trees.  Birds always inspire me, and the colours in this are screaming spring, aren't they?

The Lid on My Scrap Box Can Finally Close!

And once I got bored with "fire" I did a few "water" ones.

Thanks for being here.  I hope that I inspire someone today.

Favorite Stamps

Stamps by Inkadinkado and Ma Vinci

I do love both of these stamps, although I haven't used either of them much.  So many stamps, so little time.....
