  1. So very lovely the first one!

    And the last one I like very much, it's quite fun! =D

    I've drawed a little more, just a wee bit, but I'm far far from satisfied..
    I love your paintings, so cheerful!

    Smiles.. Viola :)

  7. Awesome works!
    As a crystal healer I used to teach meditation and visualization many ears ago. I find it very useful while drawing.

  10. The frost in your girl's eyes are so amazingly beautiful. I love seeing the tranquility in all your drawings...I suppose meditation helps to let it show?

    And happy birthday my Pisces friend, thank you for being such a lovely soul. I'm so glad we found each other in blogland. :) OXX

  11. Oh man I love both of these--the top for the contrast of the white hair and the purple color you used for the skin--lots of drama with minimal line work. And the bottom for the girl with the zany, cute pose, and all the text of what's on her mind really adds to it.

    Overall, great pieces.

  12. I love them both. I sure wish I were as flexible as the girl in the second one! LOL. Beautiful poetry, as always. xoxo

  13. Oh I love these. I love how you have the used the wording in sketch #2 to give it more feel and motion.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The serene girl at the top has the most beautiful and haunting eyes..wow!!
    xx

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love the soulful face you've drawn. Gorgeous eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  16. These are great! I especially love the bottom one! Oh, that I could get into that pose and stay more than a tenth of a second.....

    ReplyDelete
  17. the first girl is luminous. she really drew me in.

    capturing the second girl-- yoga girl!-- from the back was very clever. makes me want to get out there and stretch!

    ReplyDelete
  18. love her eyes in the first sketch, doubt I'll be able to do that position in the second sketch.

    wishing you a sweet day.

  19. Hi Tammie, I'm feeling much better this evening...thank you for well wishes... Love the position you've got going on with your girlie...wish I could do that.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love the meditative nature of drawing... sure others don't understand it but there is something so calming about sitting and getting something down on paper... you captured it beautifully ... have a wonderful week...xx

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your top girl is so pretty and the second one wants me to make me go do some yoga.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful work...love them!

    ReplyDelete
  23. OMGosh! The yoga position is awesome. I so wish that I could not only assume that pose but possess much of which yoga teaches. First image is very haunting. You do a great job of capturing melancholy in faces.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great yoga position! I like her flow and your words moving with her. They both relate your peacefulness and introspection.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ooo I wish I could balance like that!! Maybe I could a long time ago but alas no longer haha!
    Great sketches. The first one really pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hello Tammie so great to have come upon you through sunday sketches. Your blog is a lovely place to visit. Your home sweet home picture is adorable, love it. Will visit again. xx

  27. i do love a good evening sketch. it IS so therputic, inspiring and fun, and i love yours! ^^

  28. Pouty lips always look so intriguing. Why is it that all of a sudden my inguinal area hurts? :)

    Ah Tammie, trying to make myself smile today. I am back at work and back to the stress. Funny, my work is not the one giving me stress but my "art" activities do. Sigh, I wish I could just be satisfied with doing it rather than overanalyzing why I do it. Is it possible to equally love and loathe something? I do. I love drawing and painting bit loathe why I do it. I no longer find it meaningful nor useful. Now I just feel stuck.

    Utter failure.

    Anyway. I have to tend to this project. It is nice to be needed and have people demand your attention and make you feel frantic. Oh the pay is not bad either.

    Have a wonderful day and thank you for allowing me to meditate and recite my failure mantra.

    Ahummmmmnnnnn....

  29. Your sketches are wonderful. I really like the first one and can't wait to see it completed. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. these sketches are great. I love the blue eyes! i like the way you sketched the 2nd girls legs with so much shape to them. Nice job!

    ReplyDelete
  31. what beautiful drawings! was recently reading about the mannerists at the end of the Renaisance era - these girls belong right in that era

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fabulous pictures and I only wish I was as bendy when I do my yoga :D Your earings in the previous post are gorgeous too.

    I shall think of you when I'm doing my yoga.x

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's a long while since I could do that posture without any pain!
    That's a lovely thing to call your daily drawing, meditations. Drawing certainly is like that and it takes us to another place doesn't it. :o)

  40. evening meditations is a perfect name! and I adore both those sketches. I've been doing traditional yoga since the beginning of this year, but I don't think I can do that move, lol!
    have a blessed night

  41. Absolutely beautiful! I love the subtle hues in her face. You know, you inspired me to pull out my watercolor pencils, but I could not produce anything nearly as beautiful as you!

    I don't do any yoga, so maybe that's why her pose looks so painful to me. Hahaha! Very fun, though!

    Yoga pants. I like yoga pants, but that's about as close to it as I get. :)

  42. With you it's very easy to find the balance!
    Very easy ...
    I love your work!
    Kisses, Tammie!
