Paint Party Friday 1/5

Hi Everyone!

 It has been a busy week with me re opening my website after a short time off. I was able to get a few drawings done.  Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday. I look forward to seeing what all of you have created this week. 
Trying something new. 
I feel like this is a bit flat but I will work on it.

This was done so fast that I am surprised at it. 5 minutes maybe 6
 I tried out the charcoal my Son got me for Christmas
Not sure how I like it. I will have to play with it more.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. Wonderful art as always. Happy 2018 to you! Hugs, Valerie

  2. lovely sketches Nicole. Happy PPF!

  3. Lovely portraits with your new charcoals ~ have fun with them!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  4. Wonderful new sketches for the new year! They look great! I've yet to master charcoal myself. It's so messy!

  5. sometimes it the quick pieces that turn out great :) probably because we are not thinking too much about them and ours minds start to work differently when drawing :)

  6. Great sketches! I can't believe that second one only took 5 mins! Happy PPF!

  7. Great drawings as always, Nicole.
    Wishing you the healthy and happy new year 2018 💕

  8. Nice pieces Nicole. Happy New Year

    much love...

  9. I think they turned out amazing

  10. I find charcoal very hard to work with ... you have done a marvelous job here and good on your son for such a perfect gift. I too had a long break from Paint Party Friday. I am glad to be back especially to see the art of others.

  12. I think it is fun to try new things. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. You are always good at faces :)

  13. Lovely sketches - great capture of expression, especially in the eyes!

  14. Happy this year!
    Offline is good every now and then. I could easily be offline all the time :) no, not totally...
    Your post reminds me to sketch fast. Today. Thanks!

  15. Fantastic sketches Nicole, I didn't realise but it appears that I took a blogging break too.
