Crazy Lady sketch
Sorry I haven't posted lately. No excuses, just moving forward from here. This is one of my daily 30 minute sketches. I belong to a Facebook group called Urban Sketchers Midwest, and one of the members posted a drawing in which he scribbled as part of his skeching technique. I loved it so much that I decided to do the scribbling technique in one of my Crazy Lady series. After scribbling the hair, and then scribbling the background, I filled in part of the scribbles, just like I used to do when I was a kid. It was so much fun! Thanks to James Nutt for the inspiration.
