Sketchy Aspirations


How is everybody? Life has been busy and it's been super hot, leading to lethargy and lassitude. Well, more than usual in my case.:-)

I have been creating, but it feels like too much effort taking pictures and posting them. I however, have been meaning to post something new that I tried, for the longest time. The time has come. Cue dramatic music.:-)

You see, I have these huge artsy aspirations. Shh.. don't tell anybody.I have big dreams of being a real painter, to be able to paint pretty pictures, realistic or abstract and fun and beautiful. Only problem is that I do not have the talent or the skill to do so at this moment. What a bummer!Lol

I am not giving up though. I am taking baby steps and trying my hand at sketching and what better way to force encourage yourself to do so by participating in some fun challenges.

I have been following some great artist blogs and one of them, Dion Dior hosts a weekly sketch party .

I sketched and painted these birds a few months back when husband and I had gone to a bird sanctuary. My plan was to sketch all the birds that we saw, but I am done with just three.Be kind though. This is the very first time that I have attempted sketching and watercolours.

These are coloured with Inktense pencils. Love the vivid colours.

P.S :Doesn't the dove look funny and cartoonish. It just makes me laugh.

I hope to get better soon and post more sketchbook updates. Wish me luck!

Submitting to Dion Dior's Friday Sketches (These are not recent ,so not too sure if they qualify)
