Greetings! I have two sketches to share with you today. The stylized self-portrait in the tag started of as a twenty minute sketch. However, I have to confess that I kept going back to adjust areas to make it pop better against the dark background. The background and the embellishments were added before and after the completion of the sketch. The lady's portrait in the art journal page took less than twenty minutes to do. I added the hand lettering and the embellishments after I completed the sketch. You can read more about my techniques by clicking on the linked titles above. Have a blessed week!
