Just a sketch

Reminds me I must renew my lost one. Good sketching Mia.

Attractive little cottage, nicely drawn Mia.

Well sketched Mia. The cottage, fence and trees are nicely positioned on the paper.

Lovely sketch Mia, have missed your postings so glad you are back!

Lovely sketch, Mia, and I am so glad you are managing to carry on with your art even although it must be difficult at the moment. I like the composition of this one and the super fresh feel.

A gorgeous piece, Mia! It's beautifully drawn and toned, and there's a lovely spontaneous air and so much life and vibrancy in the piece. So glad you're back, I've missed your postings!

Super sketch Mia, I usually use a waterproof ink pen but the tones you have produced with the water are very effective. Glad you are posting again, look forward to seeing more.

Great sketch - would love to see a painted version - are you going to attempt one?

Lovely to see one of your delicate sketches again. And good to know that you're feeling up to drawing and painting ? again. Bonne continuation.

Super work Mia, lovely to see

A clean fresh sketch. A delight to see.

Thank you all so very much for your positive comments. Michael, I accept the challenge. Are you joining me?

Beautiful little sketch Mia. Keep drawing, we have missed you!

Mia - how can I resist - yes I'll have a go - a bit busy at the moment so if all else fails I'll do it on Tuesday morning latest. - how's that?

Thank you very much, Satu. You are very kind. Michael, I can't wait.....

Not just a sketch, a beautiful sketch.

A superb sketch Mia and the Millstones one too.

Thanks Karyl, Gudrun and Val. I appreciate your comments.

Mia - about to post my interpretation of this lovely sketch

We have all I'm sure missed your work in the gallery and wish you a speedy recovery. I love this sketch and have also used Stabile Point 88 pens . . . .which are available in our local supermarket! They are so easy to use and blend so well with a damp brush. Happy sketching.

Thank you very much, Roger, for your good wishes and nice comment. Yes, I enjoyed using the Point 88, it's a pitty that they are not lightfast.

Fantastic sketch Mia, beautifully painted

Thanks Petra. I do appreciate your positive comments.

Hang on Studio Wall

Another of my Staedler point 88 washed sketches. The waterbrush is very handy when you are limited in your working space (a sofa and a little table next to it). All comments welcome :) Mia
