Sunday Sketches

So I was thinking, I recently participated in the Sketch Book Project through Art House Coop...here's the link  http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject

It occurred to me that I should feature some of the sketches from my sketch book that were submitted for the project. My theme was Make Mine A Double. Most of them were colored pencil. So for the next few Sunday Sketches I'd like to highlight my sketches from the Sketch Book Project.  Here's the first one. All of the sketches refer to double in some way...some are obvious like this one but you can try to figure out the others.

Enjoy the Sunday Sketch and for more awesome art visit http://bluechairdiary.blogspot.com/

Yay, so glad you're doing this. I never finished my sketchbook - truth be told, I barely started. I just had a complete block on the subject!

Love parrots - especially when they say Hello to you.
