"Simple Faces" - Sketchbook Delight II

Lesson 5 in Alisa Burke's Sketchbook Delight part 2 online class is Simple Faces.  My watercolored girl looks a bit serious but that is because she is busy thinking about whether she should have a snack or take a quick nap.  I know this because most late Sunday afternoons I sport this same face!  Usually the nap wins out first followed by a snack upon awakening.  I am a girl of simple tastes - - I joke that if there were awards for snacking/napping I would win a big, shiny, gold one!!
I think my girl is cute but what I really love is her gorgeous green paisley shirt.  Wish I had a shirt like that - LOVE that color green!  Linking to Artists in Blogland - Show & Tell Saturday #21.

She's lovely! The serious expression makes me think she'd be a great fairytale heroine.

I like the way you have painted her with a contemplative look, yes, to snack or nap, that is the question! The green dress is beautiful.

Hi Michelle -- Simple faces. Yours looks effortless and that is how we are supposed to get it to look, but I know how long this took to get it to look effortless. Kudos Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com
