Sketch

Sketch of little Zoe

I tried to paint tonight. Let's just put it this way, I am rusty. It's been a few months. I tried and tried to work on several different ideas and just struggled all night long. So I decided to use the opportunity to sketch with pencil and paint. I don't usually take the time to do this. I did have fun. I have these two really lovely vintage gold frames that I painted black. I have wanted to do a painting of Zoe for one and Aris for the other for quite some time now. I think this color study sketch will be the idea behind the final painting. We will see. I am struggling with how I should proceed with my art. I have so many styles that I enjoy doing. Should I just stick to one? Feel free to leave suggestions.

I think you should do a little of it all. Keeps things fresh. You always seem to do such a great job. This is a pretty pic of Zoe. I'm sure whatever you decide will be perfect. Blessings, Karen

love your "sketch" she's beautiful! For me - i have to focus my creative outlets, otherwise I get to scattered, and too much stuff! lol

I think it is an adorable sketch!

I don't see any harm in jumping around with the different styles. I get bored when I stick to just one thing. I think as long as you finish each "project", and don't have too many unfinished things laying around, then it's OK.

But that's just me! :o)
