Watercolor Sketch for Large Prayer Shawl

In December I posted two watercolor sketches (1) (2) that were studies for a large Jewish prayer shawl. The client asked for a third and final sketch, which is today's posting. Next week I'll post the finished silk prayer shawl that is based on this sketch. Stay tuned!

Gesture Drawings from Life

I'm continuing my participation in the Modeling Sessions that Kamillia organizes. We usually warm up with a series of 3 and 5 minute gestures drawings. Here are a few samples. Done on Bond paper with Caran D'ache watercolor crayons.

Thank you to Dean, Erika and Irit, who have recently tagged me or honored me with a blog award. I am really grateful to them all for their interest in my work and blog. Please visit their blogs to see the great art they are creating (If you love trivia, I played the tag game in November - you can find it in my blog archives...)!

Look What I Won!

Fabulous Artist Blogger Akiko Watanabe raffled one of her amazing paintings to show appreciation for her blog followers (me being one of them), and look what came in the mail today! This is an acrylic ACEO (2.5 x 3.5). This little beauty is amazing in its sensitivity and detail.

Thank you, Akiko!
