A flash from the past...

This was a little drawing that I did in my sketch book a while back that was just in pencil so I decided to print it out on paper and paint it with watercolor. I had forgotten that I had even drawn these girls. I like the simplicity of the girls I used to draw. The faces are colored with copic markers. I enjoy using the copics to shade faces and I need to do more of it because...it's fun! I am not sure who these three are. They don't look much like sisters and the girl on the right might be a little older but I did name them..from left to right...Lily, Becca, and Claire. They are sweet girls who love each other.

Tomorrow I will post a giveaway for Scripture beads!

Lovely girls! I am a lot like that myself. Every now and then I look through my 'stuff' and find things I had totally forgotten. Mixmedia, lettering, painting, sewn project. It is a lot of fun! My children always name my characters that I paint, too. Sweet!

These girls are gorgeous! I love the skin tone I must try out those copic markers. Lovely colours in this one!!! :0)

Your girls always have great personality. Of course I like your dialogue that you put with them in your posts too.

Ya know Martha, I think Copic should pay you for advertising for them. You do amazing things with the Copic Markers and make it look so easy.
