What's in My Sketchbook?

20110323 Skull & Feather

20110323 Skull & Feather CU

Since I started to learn to draw girls, I've become vastly interested in human anatomy, especially the human skull. It is of such fascinating structure.  I've wanted to include some skull works in my drawings and paintings, but didn't know why it took me this long to do it! ;)  Hope you like it.

This is also my entry to Paint Party Friday hosted by Eva and Kristin.  All are welcomed!  Do join in to share and support each other!

Cheers and have a lovely weekend!

Very nice work. Love the addition of the feathers. Thanks for commenting on my blog for PPF.

Interesting drawings, Love the way you painted them using a very limited palette but tone to get the contrast. Beautifully done.

Envious of your sketching and journal! It's on my list:) So makes sense to explore anatomy.

Looking good. It almost looks as your work could be an illustration for a story. :-)

The soft lines of the feathers really compliments the hard lines of the skulls. Nice job!

I like your style. Your sketching is great, wish I could do that. Shading excellent. Those skulls come alive when you keep staring at them. Great job. Have a wonderful weekend.

What a great sketch. Ink and watercolour washes are my favourite and this looks amazing with the script through the back of it. Your skulls almost look 3d in the first picture!

Nelly said...

I want to say that your skulls are so fun, but I am not sure that works...hehehe. I think these are cool!

Toni said...

I wish my sketchbook was that pretty! An artist after my own heart, I LOVE SKULLS! What kind of sketchbook do you use. I never can find one with paper that can take watercolor?

Thanks for popping by... I like your skull and feather painting... great header, I really like "Dare to Leap"

Annabelle said...

This is lovely and that header is gorgeous! I would like to try pen and ink. I think the blue and black are great companions and perfect for this subject matter.I like how you created the illusion of 3d with the skulls and the toning as well...great work!
