banking on drawing


It never fails to amaze how a little watercolor can miraculously bring a drawing to life! The results make me want to go through my sketchbook and touch up every single sketch in it! These sketches are also from my time spent at the bank yesterday...did I mention it was a long wait! The pair at the bottom were speaking in sign language. In my next life, this is something I am going to learn to do.

These are wonderful! So expressive with so few lines and the color really does add a lot. I'd wished for my sketchbook in the post office line last week! Clever title too.

Yeah I agree. It really does bring them to life. These are just great. I'm sorry it took so long at the bank - but I've enjoyed your visit!

Color does add a lot to sketches. But your drawings can stand alone and look fine. Your drawing at the bank from the day before is also very good.

Suzanne I love your sketches, they are so expressive. And yes you do have a great job, the stationery designs are lovely. Very cool

It really is interesting, about colour - how it covers a multitude of sins, or at least makes them irrelevant. Nice quick, expressive sketches.

Very expressive lines and I feel the same way about WC on those sketches.

Yes, I find a touch of colour can make all the difference - then I think I'm using it as a crutch - BAD - but i just like it - what doea it matter.
