Sunday Sketches - Happy New Year!

I'm starting the New year with a new friend. My father-in-law made me this light-box and I'm in love - or a least a little smitten.

Below you'll find some sketches for the Illustration Friday topic 'Sink'. Christmas was so busy, I didn't get to choose one and paint it. I seem to be accumulating sketches and ideas but am lacking opportunities to paint. Hopefully I'll make some time soon.

  14. Such sweet and lovely sketches! The best gifts are usually the handiest ones. So nice of your father in law to make this for you. ^_^

    Light boxes are the best! I have no idea I ever did without the one I have now...saves me time what it comes to inking an illustration.
