girl with the hat sketch (IF 'ahead')


This is a sketch for a watercolour illustration I'm working on right now. Thought it fits with IF's topic 'ahead'. As I don't know whether I will be able to finish it in time I thought, I post the sketch first. I often like my sketches more than the final work. The roughness sometimes seems more appealing to me but would look odd in a final illustration with everything else as neat as I can possibly get it done.
I will post the watercolour as soon as I'm done with it.

  1. I'm with you, Maria — the first "rough" stuff is always closest to what I want to create. This is lovely on its own!

  13. Gorgeous!! Is it bad to say I actually like the sketch better? The painting is beautiful, too, but the I think the sketch has a loose quality in the drawing that goes well with the wind idea.

    To Valerie: No it's not bad at all. That's what I struggle with ever so often.
