#3 Sketch for Sunday Sketches...

Sunday Sketches ~profile detail

I've never been very good at profiles...So this week I decided to practice a little.
I found a good tutorial here.
I am going to buy some really good quality paper this week too. Perhaps a few sketches will go into the Etsy shoppe when opened...

Hi Andrea, great to meet you on SS! If you're not good at profiles, you've come a long way, because this one looks great, really nice job!

I'm following you now like I do all the SS, had a look around your blog, really nice previous sketches too!

Happy SS, Susan

hi Andrea - I've never tried a profile sketch before but this one looks great! I am interested in this now so will have to attempt one and see how it turns out.

Fun!

Hi Andrea,
I want to check out the link you left for profiles. That is something I would like to get better at also. Especially with the eyes. I have always struggled with that in my artwork.

I love the lips on this one especially. Very soft and delicate.

Happy Sunday! :)

Very nice Andrea! An excellent profile!

Thanks for your comment on my blog - though the most bizarre thing happened - I hit publish and it disappeared. How incredibly odd. Wish I knew where it went and how to get it back...

Have a fantastic week!

Andrea, your sketch is looking very good. I need to practice profiles also, they are quite tricky to get to look right, nice job though. I will check out the tutorial you mention. For paper I like using Bristol Vellum for sketching, and an affordable brand for me is Strathmore.

hello Andrea,
I think you did a fabulous profile drawing. I can see the resemblance you spoke of in mine. Interesting. I feel an elegance in her. I will take a look at the link, thank you.
