Sketches




Happy Easter to anyone who may pop in and visit my blog and a big thank you for your kind comments.
Thank you also for some recent tags, sorry I have been a bit slow on the uptake.
I will try and do them this week as I am on holiday...at home.

We have been visiting family the last few days and I did manage to do some sketching so here they are.
I have used a mixture of paint, oil pastels and soft pastels in these drawings.
The tree drawing is from my imagination and the lavender field is inspired by an old post card with some added trees.
I can completely loose all track of time when I'm painting, my husband thinks I am in a trance like state, almost like I have been hypnotised.
I hope to have some more stitching to show you this week, but now it's back to eating chocolate!

Beautiful sketches and I can see right where the stitches will surely go. Of course you are in trance when you create, it is from there it all comes. couldn't do it otherwise.

It is easy to tell that you are very passionate about yout paintings and drawing as you are about your embroidery. I really enjoy looking at them and imagining how the layers of different media came one upon the other...Lovely

Kayla you always stun me with the beauty of your work. The colors simply glow and the landscape is so clear I can smell the lavender and hear the wind in the leaves... wasn't that a bee I heard?
