This sketch is the start of my Nibblefest entry. The theme this month is nursery rhymes. I chose Little Bo Peep. This is actually a composite of more than one sketch put together in Photoshop. Alex taught me how to use multiply, a layer feature, and it enables me to play around with various compositions and layouts quite handily. I've started on the painting, but as usual, I am doubtful if I will finish it on time. The weather is warm here, so things dry really quickly with the acrylics that I'm using, so it's possible, but if I don't finish it in time for a 7 day listing, there's always a 5 or 3 day listing... One of these months, I am going to get this done well in advance, although I told myself that last time...

I think she has the possibility to be come a dark little bo peep! hehe.
Wow must learn to do that too! May start next weekend!
She's a sweetie! Can't wait to see her finished!!
Great sketch! Love what you have started here and can't wait to see the finished process. :)
I love the sketch!
she's great. I like that you used photoshop for composite your sketches, it's a good way to use photoshop.
thanks for stopping by my blog. hope you have a great day.
Aww, thanks so much for the Little Bo Peep love. She's coming along, I'll post a little work in progress shot...
Adrienne, I definitely thought about going gothic with her, but ultimately decided to keep her a little more classic :).
Alice, I'm not sure if I'll do more nursery rhyme ladies, there's definitely a bunch of ideas there to bounce around off of!
Lissa, it's a new way to use photoshop for me, but I am enjoying it.
she is looking fabulous and glad I'm not the only one who has trouble getting work finished... mind you I hope you get this one done quickly as I really want to see how it turns out...xx
Thanks Tracey! I really must, must try to get started sooner on Nibblefest paintings :).
