Pandora ! WIP

Hi, its been a busy week trying to get some Christmas present shopping done and not with huge success......am sure I have shrunk with all this walking..........
Anyways its Paint Party Friday again and thought I would show you how am getting on with Pandora.............still loads and loads to do on it yet.........but I think it will be finished in time for Christmas...............(fingers crossed)


Plus this is a little sketch from my sketch book;  it looks nothing like the person its supposed to be, still you can't get it right all the time can you.............lol

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Will be back this evening to view all your craftings and to see the smashing artists over at the Paint Party.  Take care, Hugs Annette x

Pandora is looking fab, but.....your sketch!!! Oh wow Nettie. I bet she looks exactly like her! You captured her essence wonderfully. She is a strikingly beautiful woman and your sketch portrays this. Are those sparkle earrings she's wearing...maybe diamonds? Love it!!

Fabulous work - I especially love the sketch - soooo sexy!

Love how you've captured the look.

trisha too said...

I think you're doing a fabulous job--I can't draw people to save my life! Birds, things, graphics, no problem, but people? No way!

(Don't open that box, Pandora!!)

I admire how you work away at your paintings; if I can't finish something quickly then I usually toss it aside.
