Last Week's Art

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a nice weekend. Here are some of the drawings I did last week. I am trying different skin tones, expressions, hair colors and styles. I even tried a couple of full body people but gotta work on that some more.

So far the hair is my favorite part. With my colored pencils I may used up to 3 or 4 colors to make the hair color look dimensional and authentic.

Take a look!

I have really enjoyed this and look forward to seeing what I do this week. Take care and have a lovely day!!!!

Our Cards & Great Events

Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one! Just wanted to share some cards I donated to a couple of great ladies' events. First, last month I gave these lovely cream and white thank you cards for the Behind The Bench Basketball Wives Conference held in Atlanta, GA.  Behind The Bench

I was so happy to hear they were given to the special honorees. One of them was Rev. Bernice King- Dr. Martin Luther King's daughter!!!! How cool is that???

Then, this week we sent some cards to L.A. Focus Newspaper's annual First Ladies High Tea which will be tomorrow.  First Ladies High Tea

I love high teas and this is a great event that we have donated to for the last few years.  This upscale tea is filled with gospel music, celebs, scholarships for youth, great food and of course lots of fabulous hats! One of our dear customers is on the committee and we love supporting her and the event.

Thanks for taking a look and hope you enjoyed! Have a great weekend!

More Portrait Drawings

Happy Friday! Well, this week among other things I have been drawing up a storm. I am still so surprised how fun and relaxing this has been for me. So here are a few I did this week

I have loved thinking of different hair styles and colors as well as skin tones and make-up.  When I start sketching, I have no idea how they will turn out. So that is apart of the fun too. They all have their own unique personality and style.

Also, I have had fun creating the earrings. Maybe there will be a K Simone Designs jewelry line one day!!!!!

Thanks for all the cheers y'all.

Love the blue I added to her hair. Also love the earrings! I would wear those.

This was my 1st tilted face. Love her hair and hair color!

Love her hair color and style as well as the earrings. Her eyes were too big but that's ok. Still learning!

This is my favorite from top to bottom She has such personality!!!

Tired a different hair-do and love her face shape.

Love the hair color and those blue eyes. Plus the green earrings came out nice.
So which one is your favorite? Hope you enjoy!
