A Sulky Girl and more postcards.

This girl was drawn from an old cutting I had stashed away; I had been meaning to draw her for ages.  I don’t know where the photo came from as it was many years ago I should really put the source on the back, but when I am ripping bits out from magazines, I get too lazy to do so thinking I will remember.  This picture called to me as it reminded me of myself as a child, I use to hide at the back of the house and sulk!  Never for too long. I was a very inquisitive child, and would find something to take my mind off the imagined or real insult.  I used coloured pencils and chalk pastels.

My give away starts this week.  If you leave a comment during the month of July I will put you in the weekly draw to win two postcards.  The winner can choose from the postcards on my postcard page, (tab at top).  I decided to do this as everyone has different tastes.  Also, as it a celebration of 1 year of blogging and during that year I have gone along many paths, I felt it would be good to have a representation of my different styles.  I will be adding to it as the month goes on.

The two I am adding today are watercolours.

I am also giving away 2 cards on my Paint Party Friday Posts, so you can comment there and get two chances to win every week.

Have a happy Sunday Sketches and a good week everyone and blessings.
