Sunday Sketches...With Sophia

Sunday Sketchs
Based on a true story

We didn't keep trying, after four boys, for a pretty little girl to have her act like a little boy!


On another note...
This scanned image ( I hooked the scanner up to the old laptop scanned to it then had to connect the "mass storage device" to the laptop then connect the MSD to the iMac to get this image, which was saved as a PDF (?!) so I had to then convert to a JPEG to get it up here! Whew!) is terrible quality. The colours are more muted and the lines deeper in the original and there are no spotty bits! :) How do you get your paper images to the computer screen without it looking really bad?

Here is a quick photo with closer colour representation...
Closer to real colours...Scanner Sucks!

Happy Sunday my Friends!

I like her and her outfit. she's looks like she rather be somewhere else...

as for scanning, I don't have to go from machine to machine. my scanner connects to my Mac laptop. Perhaps you can directly connect the scanner to your iMac. if the scanner has a usb or firewire connection, it can work. I use a software that did not comes with the scanner - it is call VueScan - you can google it. It is for Macs. and I scan to a jpeg format

So sweet. I love the caption.

I'm impressed with your scanning efforts. I'm lazy - strictly a snapshot kind of girl. :)

Andrea,
she is absolutely adorable! Awwww....this is the 2nd art piece today on a ballerina - something I hold close to my heart. She is beautiful.

PS I am adding you to the sign up sheet so others can come visit you. When you post your art each week, remember to stop by my blog and add your name/URL to Mr. Linky so other peeps can find you.

Hugs!

Hi Andrea,
This is great. It actually reminds me of my daughter. She is a beautiful girl, but prefers skateboarding and skiing to ballet and tutus!
So well done!
Happy Sunday to you!!!

What an enchanting little person. A magical ballerina who wished for hockey :)

I love your artwork, Andrea!
