sketching for an illustration



although i've got several projects going on right now, i've been itching to start on the illustration i've been commissioned to draw. it's going to be of 3 girls playing in the yard. you can see some rough scribbles in my sketchbook in the photo here.
the biggest girl in the middle is holding out her finger which has a butterfly sitting on it. (i ran out of space at the binding as you can see.) although it looks like it, she's not supposed to have four or more legs. i was just trying out different positions to see if i like her leg kicked up or just pointed backwards. as i get further on this project i'll keep you updated!

there is another project i've been working on. actually, my husband more than me. we put hardwood floors into our living room and updated the old fireplace with a new mantle. next week i should be able to get a post ready to show you some before and after pictures.

what projects are you working on? any hobbies or home renovations?

Those sketches are darling! I vote for the butterfly girl to have her leg in the third position, toe pointed to the ground. I think I might just be following you now so I'll be able to find out what you go with!

I am working on baby clothes, i.e. a cute tiny dress for my granddaughter-to-be.
Besides, I am studying catalogues for home decorations to get new ideas, because my husband and I want to change a few things around our house and backyard soon.
