Sketch

I find it very hard to sketch with just a line, so most of my sketches are a bunch of lines and sometimes gray tones. Once I have the basics set then I can refine the sketch for painting. The freedom of being able to just let the sketch HAPPEN is very important to me.

This is another sketch of Aunt Tallulah. I love her style and the flowing capes and caftans she favors. It allows me to use a lot of color when I include her in a scene.

I love tea time and this is so charming and welcoming. Great sketch. I'm glad I'm not the only one that draws with lots of lines when sketching! I find it helps me find just the right pose and gesture without worrying about messing up!
Thanks for sharing!

Love the detail on her outfit! She is truly a wonderful character. The book is going to be fantastic. Seems you are working on multiple projects Ginger. . .You are one hard worker!
