Sketch... messy lines

Mid-length layered hairstyle with bangs...
Meow there, Monday!  Another hair sketch!  These are sooooooo much fun!  But I'm can't seem to quite get it right though.  I keep over rendering the hair!  It looks like a jumbled mess of lines...  I need more practice!  =^.^=

Sketch... loose and sketchy!

Long wavy hairstyle with bangs...

Meow there, Monday!  Felt like sketching hair... soooooooo much fun!  Doing it in a rather sketchy/stroke-y and loose style. This is based on one of the pins I found on Pinterest (here)...  Loving this cute, wavy hairstyle and I like how the bangs just frames the face. =^.^=

Used watercolor for the base layer...

Sketch... weekday weekend

Casual outfit for the weekend... or weekday!

Meow there, Monday!  A casual and cute OOTD for a weekend... The new week just started and I'm already thinking of the weekend!  Anyway, just used my mechanical pencil for the outlines, thought the inkpen would be a bit too strong for the color scheme and look.  =^.^=

Sketch... sparkly ombre

simple and chic beaded ombre gown
Meow there, Monday!  Short but chic ombre evening gown, with sparkly beading in white, pink and blue... A bit princessy and prom-ish though, so maybe the grey would make it a bit more modern and less cutesy?  Maybe???  LOL... I love grey though!  But blue is still my fave color!  =^.^=

Sketch... teal and turquoise

Teal and turquoise blue shirtdress outfit.

Meow there, Monday!  Simple shirtdress outfit for today's fashion sketch. Going for vivid colors!  Liking the color combo of teal and turquoise... And finishing the look with neutral-colored accessories, to complete the nature-y theme...  =^.^=

Portrait... Franco de Vita

Franco de Vita portrait in watercolor, watercolor pencils and graphite pencils...

Meow there, Monday!  Another one of my fave singers, Franco de Vita!   I wanted to do this portrait in a loose, stroke-y style, but somehow it just went the other way around.  Anyway, I used my usual mix of art mediums:  watercolor (Prang, for the base colors), watercolor pencils (Derwent and Faber Castell) and graphite pencils (Staedtler EE and Liberty).      

Sharing some of his songs... Hard to choose which songs to include in this blogpost.  Sooooooo many beautiful songs!    =^.^=

"Te Veo Venir Soledad"
I loooooove this one!  My fave part is the last third of the song (at about 4:15)...

"Tan Solo Tu"

"Como Decirte No"

"Te Pienso Sin Querer"

"Si Tu No Estas"

"Si La Ves"

Meow there, Monday!  Working on a new portrait... another one of my fave singers, Franco de Vita!  Almost done with it, but not quite... need to do some more final shading/rendering adjustments.  Will post the finished portrait next Monday.  I hope I don't mess this one up!  =^.^=
