Braids and Blue Bowes

 Finally a completely successful drawing of a young whimsical girl, inspired by a line drawing by artist Tonmoy Sarker.

I drew this face in my Strathmore Toned Tan sketch book and colored it with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Brush Pens. I do find these pens hard to use, but worth making the effort to use them. Some highlights in the hair were done with a Gelly Roll pen.

I am delighted with this little girl!

I feel strongly, that if I had not decided to join the Fun Fab Drawing Club at Awesome Art School online, I would not be drawing at this level. As an art teacher, I felt I was born to teach art. I had some skills and enjoyed learning more. When I retired and moved to Florida, it seemed that some of my drawing skills were left behind. I eventually began taking painting lessons online and then discovered Awesome Art School, where I enjoy learning more and enhancing my skills. Thank you, Karen Campbell!

Oh my, Carla! Just when I think your art can't get better, it does!

This is such a fresh, clean painting. Her face could be the basis for several short stories!

Thanks for sharing with us at A Place to Start!
