Sunday Sketches Gingerbread Men





Wow how did two weeks of Christmas break go so fast? I'm not sure what I did but it wasn't working on sketches or paintings. The only thing I did manage to do was clean it up. ha ha. This morning I woke up and realized I hadn't done anything for today's Sunday Sketches. So... guess what I've been doing the past 4 hours??? Creating a very sketchy watercolor from a photograph I had taken of my gingerbread cookies.
Hopefully I'll have something done for Creative Tuesday's theme "How I spent New Years Eve."
Enjoy the cookies and make sure to visit Sunday Sketches to see what the others have created.

  3. What a lovely painting! It looks better than the photo! I love the mix of pen and watercolour as it's something I've been experimenting too. Just about to follow you on bloglovin as I've just found you through Alexandra's Sunday Sketches. :)

  4. Wow, that's fantastic, Karen. I LOVE it. Way better than the photo as any art should be too. Perfect. I love your sketchiness and vibrancy of colour. Wishing you a wonderful new year! Hahaha, had to laugh over the cleaning up. I remember spending a huge part of the morning of 27th just ding dishes! oh dear me, but it was soo worth it even if using now dishwasher china.

  5. I love it! The painting looks so much like the photograph--very impressive. I am enjoying the expression on the white gingerbread man's face . . . he looks a little surprised to be there . . . perhaps he's just realized his fate.
