A simple little sketch.

 I love her the way she is so I thought I would show her before I add any more to her. I want to colour
her but with out changing her too much.
I want to say a
 to everyone who has visited recently
 for all your comments I really do appreciate every one.

Today I want to share another pencil drawing from my
Coloured Pencil Sketchbook.


Thank you to those of you lovely bloggers who have left comments regarding your preferred coloured pencils, I am still undecided but I am thinking that it may be a good idea to buy some singles of a couple of brands and compare them before I invest in a set.
Thanks for stopping by.

I want to wish a big welcome to those of you who visit here on a Wednesday for WOYWW.

Since last week I have done a little more to the WIP I shared and you can see it here on my very busy (messy) looking desk.

Following on from yesterday's post. I am grateful to Susi for her views on coloured pencils and will welcome any comments regarding your favourite brand of  pencils.

Thanks for visiting.

More on Coloured Pencils

I have been designing and making my daughters Wedding Invitations so I haven't been able to do anymore work on my latest painting.

 However I have been taking time out to look on line at reviews on different brands of coloured pencils as people who are regular visitors to my blog will know that I have developed a love for using them recently and am looking to buy some good quality pencils.

If, by chance, any coloured pencil artists happen to see this post I would value your opinion.

Here is another page from my Coloured Pencil Sketchbook.

Till next time....thanks for visiting. XXX

As it is time, ,once again, for Paint  Party Friday I thought I would show you some pics of my current WIP

It started out looking like this but the background looked too busy.

So it went through some changes.

The upper background is still the same but the lighting has made it look slightly different. the top one is nearer the original.

There is still more work on both the figure and the background to do. I am hoping it will be finished next time you see it.

Thanks for stopping by.

On a Roll

I just can't put my coloured pencils down.  

Letting her Hair Down
I am really pleased how she turned out but my favourite detail is her stocking feet.
I hope you like her. 
Bye for now.
