Sketch Book Sunday

Sketch book and looking close the eyes are not even.LOL... In life is there a perfect set of eyes? Not perfect yet they seem to fit the face...

So we go on to the nose, it seems to fit and then there are the lips..Yes a little bit crooked... or is just mischief....

Then you put them all together, Is it a perfect face..No,but it all goes together. I know you can not see all over the face and around I sketch leaves and foliage.. I wanted her to be covered in a veil of greenery. One day maybe I shall try to paint her coming out from the trees a Forest fairy taking a look into the world outside the forest. I see it can you ? Looking out from the deep green forest with beautiful shades of green surrounding her and a light veil of vines covering her. We shall see but for today she is just waiting in my sketch book.
Thank you for stopping by and looking in.. I do appreciate all the comments and just the ones who stop in to take a look.
May you always dream in color.

Wonderful expression - lovely sketch! I don't ever feel there is a perfect face.To me a smiling one is near perfect :) Everyone's expressions and features are different and add to character! You've done a beautiful job on this! xxoo

I love the vines and NO ONE has even eyes! the right and left side are always different!

Janet said...

I don't think eyes are ever perfectly even! Mine are on two different levels. If you made them too perfect they wouldn't look realistic. I love the vines and foliage all around her. Great sketch!!

Your Mom speaking of gardening is exactly my mother too. She is the happiest when she is outside digging and planting in her garden. You said it so beautifully.
And the portrait and what you have written about it is very lovely.

THis is a really great face and I love the ideas you have of the forest fairy. SHe does have quite a mystery about her. I also enjoyed your earlier posts and acrylic painting about taking something painful and making something beautiful out of it.

I agree that the near perfect face is a smiling one.
Love your sketching, Katelen!

i really like her, its simple and yet so full of character x

Noelle said...

Yes, wonderful! You are gifted in so many ways. I do love the idea of a forest fairy - I'm all about magic and whimsy. Oh, and no two eyes are exactly even anyway. Perfection, in my opinion. :) take care.

I loved the eyes! At 1st I thought it was going to be a self portrait after having read the post where you had your own eyes posted. Eyes are hard to get even. I rarely succeed at this. I don't think anyone's eyes are perfect. I like you idea about the foliage. Cool! Can't wait til you do it!
