  19. Hello Tammie! I look at your girl and I think of an English Rose. So delicate, fair and lovely! Beautiful choice of proverb too...


  20. Hello and welcome Mikkamakka,
    lovely to see her through your eyes.

    Thanks for enjoying the proverb. I was working with a poem for her....
    but the poem seemed like it was for a drawing that I have not made yet...
    So I had to make a proverb up instead, thanks for enjoying both!

    Hello Amalia,

    An english rose, I can see this too. Thank you. The proverb came from her spirit~

  21. Beautiful sketch tammie...saw it at Suzi's . Your work is ethereal and makes me so calm, i actaully think I smell wildflowers when I travel to your blog! You are magic!

  22. She is so beautiful, I really love the way you painted the lips :) Her face has such subtelty and innocent beauty. Lovely! And your new piece of art is wonderful :) ~Lauren

    Your art girl looks so gentle and caringwith such a beautiful face.
    Thanking for coming over and leaving me a lovely message.
    Like the mermaid art you bought also. Romantic in the sea. A dreamy life!

    Loads of love!


  34. Love her! She is so sweet but with depth and intensity. The contrast of her eyes with the softness of the rest of the picture is wonderful. I think you should a large painting of it! Same colors, same everything!

  35. Sweet and delicate, like a doll. Watercolor is difficult to work with, and you are doing great!

  36. hello and thank you all for your lovely supportive comments. you all touch my heart and make sharing my art such a delight.


    This piece as most of mine these days are done with prismacolor pencil- mostly the face and then acrylics for the rest. I do often add glazing medium to the paint which makes it translucent as well as go further, perhaps that is what makes it look like watercolor.

    with warmth,

  37. What a lovely sketch and your colors are so pretty! thank you for all of your kind words on my blog. they are always so appreciated!

  38. Oohh did I miss your art blog, I love what you did with lady Mabon...she is wonderful!!

    Thanks for allowing me to use your photo as a guiding point for my mountain scene, I will show you as soon as I have something on the canvas. All my best to you. Gris


Lovely of you to drop by! I love hearing from you~
