Eye like to sketch

A bit of work in progress I thought I would post for Sunday Sketches. Inspired by this week's challenge by the Three Muses - Eyes - I experimented with a bit of mixed media slicing a chunk out of the poor girl's face then doing a spot of pencil surgery. I plan to do more - add some bold chunks of colour and maybe layer up some more collage. You'll have to come back on Wednesday and see if I manage to ruin it or not! I've had a prolific weekend with art. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I have a cunning plan up my sleeve...

I'm not sure I dare admit it. Perhaps I'll just whisper... You see, there's an art market coming up soon at the town where I live and it only costs £10 to have a stall there... I was thinking of applying... but to do that I'll need a bit more stock... Shall I? Dare I?

  22. Thanks for the comment, and for letting me know you're a "Suzi Girl" also; not sure I caught that on my first visit, ;). I totally enjoyed my Suzi Classes...and hope to take more of them in the future. However, currently, I'm all caught up in my newest discovery ~~ art journaling! You know how we get all fired up upon a new discovery, right? It will cease, I suppose, and then I'll return to mixed media wall art, and my girls soon, I hope, ;).

    And I didn't create the new background of my blog, I just download it from Blogger.
