Sketch... color and cardie

Chilly weather outfit... add some color! 

Meow there, Monday!     Well, summer's definitely over...  The rainy season has arrived. It was a wet and chilly weekend.  Time to take the jackets/cardigans out of the closet, or buy some new ones!  =^.^=

June sketching, part 2

Meow there, Monday!  Another quick sketch from my sketchbook...  Done with a reference photo from a magazine.  And sharing with you my song of the moment.  Been listening to this song several times a day, everyday for the past few months!  I looooooooove this song!  Como Yo Te Ame by Alejandro Fernandez.  One of my fave singers!  =^.^=

June sketches, part 1...

Meow there, Monday!  A couple of quick sketches from when I was out and about... Flipped through a magazine for reference photos.  These are fun to do!  I love the spontaneity and freedom of doing quick sketches!  Very in-the-moment drawing.  No pressure with getting the likeness of the face... No over fiddling with the shading and details... Just quick movements of the hand/pencil... going with the flow!  =^.^=

Salon sketchings...

I looooooove this hairstyle!

Meow there, Monday!  Went with my sister to the beauty salon recently... she went for a hairtrim.  While waiting for her to be done, I spent the time drawing/sketching (of course!). Flipped through a Hair Now magazine for cool hairstyles to sketch.  Had a lot of fun doing these quick sketches.  But as fun as they were to do, it's not really the ideal place to sketch.  I had to do these on my lap!  =^.^=

Vacation sketching and art finds, part 3

Flipped through the in-flight magazine for stuff to sketch...

Meow there, Monday!  Last batch of vacation sketch and art find pics from my recent vacation...  I actually didn't take that many photos of artsy stuff.  It was a rather hectic and rushed vacation... just a quick, few days.  Didn't do much shopping or site-seeing, but did a lot of eating and took plenty of food pics though!  If you haven't seen my previous posts of vacation sketches/art finds, clickie-click part 1 (here) and part 2 (here)... =^.^=

Vacation sketching and art finds, part 2...

Meow there, Monday!  Continuing on with another sketch I did on the plane ride from my quick vacation the other week, and some more pics of artsy stuff I encountered while out and about.  Part 1 is (here).   When I do faces, I normally draw them properly, taking my time with the foundation sketch, the shading/rendering and the details.  Because of the time and space constraints in the plane, I had to do this batch of sketches quickly.  It's a fun and carefree way to do art!  I love the spontaneity and liberating feel of rapid/quick sketches!  =^.^=

Saw this on the way to the Star Ferry Terminal/Ocean Centre Mall in Kowloon.

Vacation sketchings and art finds, part 1...

Meow there, Monday!  Took a quick vacation last week in Hong Kong, just a few days... Fun vacation, but rather hectic!  My feet and legs hurt so much from all the walking I did! Such a lovely and dynamic city!  Anyway, spent my time on the return flight drawing instead of watching the shows the airline had on their entertainment service.  These are some of them...  Fun to do!  Just wished I had brought along at least one graphite pencil, an inkpen and some coloring mediums.  I just had that light blue pencil.  Very practical though with the very limited space (and deskspace!) on the airplane seat.   =^.^=
