Sunday Sketches...Inspired By A Rare Rainy Day and A Song!!

The chilly, rainy day that we had yesterday was the inspiration for my Sunday Sketches share... 
Chasing Those Rainy Day Blues Away!
...along with the latest single "It Will Rain" recently released by one of my fave singers, Bruno Mars! Which I had playing off and on during my sketch and color time! If you haven't heard the song  yet click HERE for a listen! It's AMAZING!
I'm thinking with the blue sky umbrella and the sunshine smile this little one has it couldn't be long before we saw the sun again! And sure as the moon shines bright the sun is smiling again today! YAY!
Here's the sketch to pops of color progression of my Rainy Day art session!






"A Rare Rainy Day"   8"x10  Colored Pencil/Sharpie  Copyright 2011
Hope your day is filled with Blue Skies and Sunshine Smiles and An Inspiring Shower too!

Linking up over at these fun and creative places.
Pop by and join in the fun...ok, off to enjoy the sun!

A Rare Rainy Day takes me back to when my kids were little and had such fun umbrellas. They loved them so much and would use them even if the sun was shining - they wanted it to rain so they could use it!

Carol said...

She would definitely chase the blues away :0)

Adorable!

I like that you showed the different stages of the piece. I always love to see how things are made. Especially things that are mysterious to me, like drawings.
