Her Hair Was Made of Hearts . . . New Sketch!

Today was supposed to be my Texture Tuesday post but alas I never got my act together for the challenge this week! Oh well. So I thought instead I would share this sketch I did yesterday.
I was having a bad day yesterday, headachy, not feeling like myself, (again, I know) so I thought about trying to sketch and get my mind off of things.

Lately I have been focusing on sketching realism with my faces but yesterday I thought it would be fun to go back to a more stylized face. And I am glad I did. I like her. Sometimes I get off track with creating what I think I "should" instead of what I truly am drawn to. I wanted to make a pretty face and I think I did!

The idea for her heart hair came after sketching in wavy hair that I hated! lol So as you can probably see I erased that and started putting down hearts.

The words came last that I scribbled up in the right corner. . .

"Her Hair Was Made of Hearts That Fell From The Sky . . . "

I think she will look pretty on a canvas. . .


  1. This is so cool Cathy - love the hearts! xxoo

  2. Awwww! She's so pretty!! And to think, all that beauty came from your headachy head while you weren't feeling well! :-) I hope you feel better now. And keep sketching. It's your forte'!

  3. Hi Cathy,
    I love your girl and her heart-hair!! very cool!

  4. Love the hair. Sometimes it great to just play on paper and see what emerges. Hope you are feeling better x

  5. Wonderful Cathy!--and yes, it's good to make art just for the sake of it--you'll always be happy with it!
