29 faces challenge: day 1

The start of the 29 faces challenge on a Saturday, well, THAT is a challenge. Somehow the weekends in this house always seem to fly by without getting a chance to do any art.

I managed to finish a sketch I had started already, so at least I have something to show.


I had bought this little notebook with brown paper years ago, and every now and then I took it out and lovelingly gazed at the pages and then put it back again, saving it for I don't know what.

So when we were going on holidays I decided to take it with me and USE it. What good is a notebook when it's just sitting in your bookcase, right?

I like working on these pages. Might try to make a white doodle or something on it. 

That's it for today. Tomorrow I'll try and visit the other participants, see who's participating this time around. I'm kinda curious ;-)

Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow ♥

  16. Beautiful! Love her pretty face looking upwards. I love drawing on brown paper. I buy most of my sketchbooks with it now. It's most wonderful for sketching with a brown colored pencil and using whites for highlights.
