The Marneys -Sketch and Watercolour

Hello crafty friends, thanks for joining me today, when I am sharing a HungryHeffyCrafts doodle with you guys! A few months ago I drew a sketch of our team at work, and then a colleague asked me to paint something to go on baby Austin’s nursery wall.

I sketched around for ages and then ….totally forgot about it! WHOOOPSIE!

Finally this past weekend, I was reinvigorated to get the project finished. I am quite pleased with how it turned out! Apart from the fact that I am kicking myself about one thing….when I uploaded the photos to my computer I suddenly realised that there should not be an apostrophe! UGHHHHH! How irritating! This is why I shouldn’t spell at half past midnight!!

Anyway, I thought you might enjoy a few photos of the finished piece.

I used both my Koi watercolours and Winsor and Newton watercolour paints, first, and then used my spectrum noir colouring pencils to add detail and to outline the images.

So the whole family is Liz, Chris, Maggie, Monty and baby Austin! I swear I have stalked poor Liz’s Facebook photos so much in a bid to get the sketches just right! LOL

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!! 🙂
