Paint Party Friday... Sketching In Shades Of Grey!

Sketching in shades of grey seems to have captured my attention the last couple of days.  With creative time being squeezed out by the holidays, long work hours and family time I've enjoyed still being able to work in some sketch time inspired by one of my fave subjects the big eye Blythe doll...captivating eyes and a tiny pouty mouth!
I'm still thinking about whether to add color, but for now I'm liking the way they look in shades of grey!

Blythe dolls, what a perfect subject for you. They are great sketches...but will you be able to resist adding color? Just thinking about those vivid violet or blue eyes on the Blythe dolls would have me reaching for a paint brush.
