Quick sketch

Last night I did a quick sketch of a photo I took in Goa. I was actually testing my new Aqua promarkers. They are nice to work with for small sketches but I think I need to use a much more smoother water colour paper as with this paper the colours were not blending that well. Here is the picture that I took.

This my sketch. Not an exact replica I am afriad but since it was a quick sketch I guess it is ok. Left out quite a few details but it was late at night and I was getting tired and sleepy.

Today I received my Alice book that I had ordered. I had one when I was a kid but my mum gave it away when I got married. I was quite gutted when I heard that she had given away all my books. Oh well that is life. I ordered a used copy and I am happy with it. It has coloured illustrations and most important of all the sketches are from John Tenniel's illustrations which I love.

This and that

On the way to Spain. The Pyrennes. Don't they look awesome?
I have been working on a challenge doll but unfortunately she is just not turning out the way I wanted her to be. I am having to abandon the idea which I started out with first. I can only show you a tiny part of her at the moment. They rather look like frog's eggs I am afraid lol!
