Sketch Friday

Finally I found

some useable sketch books, and now I'm going to sketch alot. Sketching has never been my thing, proportions and perspective never lived in my pens/pencils. No matter how hard I have been trying, my results were nothing but trash.

Now, on the other hand, it seems they ( perspective and proportions) have come to collaborate, and I'm thrilled. The fact that I'm taking the class, Mastering Twinks part two, and newly found my sketch books of a certain standard, does help my inspiration. These are my books.

Last week in February I was in Majorca, and while there I took lots of photos that now will be turned into sketches. Below is an abandoned spanish house, partly falling apart. The lovely old spanish architecture is about to disappear, as in many parts of the world for that sake. It's a shame, but it's the future.

This lovely site is located along the road between Palma and Luc Major.
I've done many many trips to Majorca, and have lots of photos from every trip. Now they'll come to good use. Lucky me!
Dion Dior invites to participate in her sketching Friday project, and I'm going to commit to that. I'll probably sketch alot more than that, so each Friday I'll post " the best of the week". I'm really happy for this opportunety to practice sketching, black pen only. Perhaps I can turn good at doing it in the future.

Enjoy your Sunday!


  1. That's a beautiful sketch Laila. I can really sense that lovely Spanish heat. So thrilled you're joining me for Friday Sketches. Hugs xx

  2. Laila,

    Your Friday Sketch of the abandoned Spanish house is BEAUTIFUL! It looks like I could walk right in the front door. Great job! :)


  3. Your sketch is beautiful! I wish I did more sketching, too. I used to sketch almost every evening but somehow got out of the habit.

  4. The warmth of the sunshine glows through your sketch. The colors and composition are beautiful. I'm one of those "dipping my toes in the water" with sketching, but I feel motivated to work at it, which I never expected!
