Sunday Sketch

Sunday Sketch.  It's a new for me linky party.  It's interesting how things seem to fall together.
For awhile I've been looking at doodles and drawings and illustrations of scripture.
I've even tried myself illustrating some scripture.  I made some drawings for my daughter for Christmas.
I've been fascinated by the bloggers that illustrated scripture and use Bibles made especially for the purpose.
There are some very nice versions on the market which allow you to some very nice illustrations and some
day when I am much better maybe I'll purchase one.
But until then I am using a Bible I already own . . .
I chose this Bible/version because the pages are thick and I can paint them and not have any bleed over.
I had notice the last Bible that I bought certain pens bled through. I was disappointed the pages were so thin.
Here are a few pages that I have already illustrated . . .
In this particular version there is a lot space available to doodle.  Call me weird but I just have a problem with writing over the word.

My plan here is to add some watercolor to the drawings .
Notice the small hearts are in the margins.  Leaving the wrote unaltered.

I'm still planning to do some drawings for my daughter.  I have a few that I've started in my composition
book.  I'm not real happy with my lettering so I'm spending some time practising.
I'll add some ink and possibly paint.

Here's the sketch I shared last week.

I made a few changes after I added the color.  It's a little shiny I used some water color paints.  I want to add some watercolor in pink to finish it off.  I like the addition of the jewels.  I wanted to give it lots of bling.

This is one doodle/sketch that I'll be redrawing as one of the sketches for my daughters Christmas gift

Thanks for visiting.

I hope your day is Blessed.

I like the idea of creating a modern version of the illuminated Bibles that the scribe monks used to work on. However, just like you, I would only do the blank boarders around the Scripture. Blessings!
