My theme this past week seemed to have been centered on farms and freshness, thanks to Junelle’s Farmers Market Yum and Art Workshop. This is the last week for it and I am slowly working through it and savoring every project. I love it! The nice thing about it is even though this initial workshop is only three weeks long, I have access to it forever, so I can continue to work my way through it and revisit it for inspiration whenever I like, and I know I will.
But let me start at the beginning of the week, or, well the end of last week and show you what I did for EMG Sketch Fest. The prompt was Flower in Her Hair, given by Louisa Dent. I think the girl has a fresh innocent look about her and I picture her picking daisies in a field of wildflowers…. see influenced by farms and freshness…
…and then there is this very happy Market Girl that I sketched for the Farmers Market Workshop…
Actually, she could be me, bringing in my basket filled with the fresh herbs and vegetables I picked from my garden.
Remember the little sketch of garlic from my garden? I painted it. Watercolor intimidates me a little, but as I practice I’m starting to feel more comfortable with it. I did some other herb sketches which I now want to add color to.
Junelle asked us to sketch a market stand and when I saw this adorable little trailer turned into a flower market, I knew I had to paint it. Isn’t it the sweetest?! If you live in their area, please do drop by The Farmstand . Their bouquets are gorgeous!
Expect to see more Farmers Market inspired sketches from me. I am hooked.
