Sketchbook West Las Laguna Gallery Show + Sketch of Lily Flowers, March 19 Art Sketches Daily...

Sketchbook West Exhibition

This is the cover of my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.  I've shared some of the sketches that are within here, but some will be available for viewing for the first time at the show.  The sketchbook will be displayed at the Sketchbook West Exhibition along with the sketchbooks of additional artists.  There will be a mix of fantasy, floral, animal, and assorted sketches within my sketchbook.  The gallery will have white gloves available for looking through the sketchbooks.  I'm hoping to be at the opening, but I will also update at what time I will be there when I have a better idea of when that will be.  I very much enjoy looking at artist's sketches, so I am looking forward to seeing the show!  I have also had one of my larger works selected to be shown there which I will share once I get her framed and ready to go.

Here is a sketch of a couple of flowers.  I think they are a type of lily, but I am not sure which one, they are mostly white with some delicate pink accents.  These may be for the hair of a maiden, I still need to sketch quite a few more though to determine which ones best suit her...

I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March.  This is day 19.  

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at if you'd like. 

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:
