I have been working on the quilt I started three years ago 🙂  I’ll post photos next time of some new blocks I have finished the past few days.  I want to get that project finished soon so I can start on some other quilt blocks.

In the meantime, I have a few sketchbook pages to share.  This first photo is actually watercolor on a sheet of  9×12 Strathmore Sketch loose paper. It’s only 50 lb weight and it wrinkled a bit.   I started with a watercolor wash, let that dry and used black paint and drew the face over the colors.  I also used a black marker to further define the features and hair.


These are random drawings from a flower and plant motif book:


This are some strips of watercolor that I glued down and doodled over them:


Metal rooster drawing made from a photo taken at a local steak house:

    I really love your sketches !!!!! I have not been brave enough to lay down watercolor, and THEN draw on top of the color….but I LOVE the ones you did like that.

    Wow, Mary!! I love love love that first watercolor face. And I also really like the very last piece. Everything is good but those two are my favorites.
