Sunday Sketches

I really challenged myself today!

It was a study of lines versus softness. I wanted to sketch my grandson sleeping but how do I define the features without loosing the softness of his face?

This is the first time I have done a watercolor portrait painting with lines.

No, he is not related to Spock ;)


  1. aw,,,,what a sweetie!!! Nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby! you really did a great job!!! You captured him! nice hair work!
    your spock comment made me LOL!
    have a great night! xo

  2. LOL at the spock comment. He really doesn't look like spock, though. :) I like the way you left his hair soft and feathery without lines. Baby's hair is so hard to depict, I think. His looks just right.

  3. Oh wow! Simply adorable and amazing!! Very nice job Joanne. Glad you were able to challange yourself successfully! :)

  4. cute. the colors and the shading is just right.

    have a sweet day.

  5. This is adorable! You did an amazing job on this it looks very realistic, I also love the background color you chose for it. Really just MAKES it.

  6. ah, this is so sweet,makes my heart purr.
