More Faces

I've been on a three day trip to beautiful Vermont with my husband. We went to our nephew's college graduation and stayed at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe. It was quite a place, with mementos and photos of the Trapp family everywhere, and quaint folk art decorated rooms. Here are a few photos of the grounds.

During the three hour drive, I did some drawings in my sketchbook and completed them with Pigma brush pens at night. Unfortunately, I couldn't blog while away, so here are the latest faces.






I'm enjoying doing line drawings. Truthfully, they are easier to do, but the challenge is to avoid getting too complicated and add too many details. For that reason, I'm planning to do a second version of "Vanessa", without most of the flowers. I'll keep these line drawings up for the rest of the week, then go back to color.

Thanks so much for visiting!
Wishing you a wonderful week!

A wonderful getaway, Judy. I'm loving your line drawings, and yes, the fewer lines, the better. You have a gift for saying so much with so few strokes.

These are so expressive, with just a few lines. One of your many gifts!

Such a beautiful place Judy. I am glad that you had time to sketch too! x
