A Sketch a day – Days 82-86

Day 82.Not all days are good!  2 miserable chooks.  Faber Castell watercolour pencils.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 83. Bargain day – and a good day it was.  I searched for an outfit for a wedding and bought more than I meant to.

This was just part of what I arrived home with.  I mislaid the other sale tags.  My wardrobe is looking much better now.

 

 

Day 84.  I enjoyed using the Micron .03 pen for these ladies.  I found it relaxing to draw lines.

The sketch is copied from a Dover freebie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 85.  Another from Dover of a Geisha walking in the wind.  Got some movement there.

Pen work again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 86.  My favourite of the three. I had some tips to get the mirror stand right, the rest was a breeze to do.  I like oriental things.

The last two sketches look very faded here – they are not in my book.

  1. With all the work you have done for the Johnston collection there is no surprise that your Japanese sketches are good.
    You will look like a queen at that wedding.

    • LOL. Queenie, I would Never have taken on sketching for the JC project, so thankfully it wasn’t part of the work.

  2. What lovely ladies! I have been doing some old-fashioned embroideries I call the Emperor’s Wives, because that’s what they remind me of. I just found them here and there on the internet, not connected to anything. I have two finished and a third one ready to stitch. These ladies are much more complicated, and you drew them beautifully! Congratulations on a new wardrobe. I’m chicken to go do that, but I’ll have to soon as all my favorites are literally getting holes in them. Did you find what you actually went to get for the wedding? LOL

    • Thanks for liking the Geishas. Yes I was able to get something I liked for the wedding and had a DD with me to okay everything.

  3. Now I’m waiting for sketches of the clothing that came attached to those tags!! Seeing the geisha’s reminded me of using the liquid embroidery paints to create one back in the day.
