Sketchbook Mondays # 4


Charcoal study

      Isn't my husband the best? :) Why yes, yes he is. I loved reading his post on Wednesday, it was so, so fun :)

      I'm back! A little tanner than I was before (always a good thing) and I think my hair got bleached a little more in the sun, so now I'm even more blonde than I was! Free hair color, can't beat that. It was a really amazing time, I loved it. I'm continually amazed how great it feels to get away from the world (ahem. . . computers) and be in the mountains. I feel like I was so spiritually fed, like I can conquer anything. A very good feeling :)

      This little sketch is one I plan on painting someday, I love that little face peeking out of the curtain. I wanted to show some movement in the curtains, while keeping the face mostly in focus. It was another really quick sketch, it took about fifteen minutes. I think it turned out better than I thought it was going to when I was in the middle of it. But isn't that how it goes? Anyway, have a great Monday everyone, sketch something awesome and tell me about it and I'll come see it! 


  1. Welcome back. Great sketch. Sorry I didn't get to interact with your hubby while you were away but, I bet he is a great guy!

  2. Good to have you back Crystal! I know what you mean about getting away from the day to day stuff - A great feeling!
    And, 'WOW' by the way! I'm sure it would have taken me fifteen minutes just to draw the eye! This really is beautiful. Your sketches are my idea of perfect drawings!

  3. Your husband rocks Crystal!

    What a gorgeous little one, your gift is amazing, I love that you share it with us!

  4. Awww, kids - don't you just love 'em!
    That's impressive for a 15 minute sketch Crystal.

  5. Thanks Carol!! He is the BEST! I'm not biased or anything right? ;)

    Sandra, you are the sweetest! :):) I'm so glad I got to know you! Thank you very much!

    Thanks so much Jen :) So glad when you stop by, I just love it!

    Thanks Frank! Kids are the best!

  6. Hope you had a wonderful break. I'm loving your 'Monday sketches' by the way..... just wish I could get into them more.... I think it gives those brain cells something to think about, besides, wonderful quick little memories! :)

  7. Thanks Debbie! It was a great little break :) This Monday sketch thing has been so good for me, it helps me to think on my feet more and not just sit and agonize over how perfect whatever I'm working on is not.

    And it's just a lot of fun :)

  8. Welcome back, lovely sketch you've caught the moment perfectly, look forward to seeing a painting of this.

  9. Monday sketches and wednesday questions --what a wonderful idea!!! and I love this sketch -you have caught the shy sparkle in the eye!!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment they really do mean so much to me! Because not all bloggers have their email enabled so I can reply directly through email I will try to reply here in the comments. If I don't please forgive me, life must have been hectic that day! :)) Huzzah!!
