Donna, the sketches are SO beautiful! I wish I could even have remotely as exquisite handwriting as you do, and the gray tones you use work so well. It is definitely a lot of sketching, but you're right, the more you do, the faster and easier it gets. :)
Oh, and sadly comments only go to the blog creator. I'll see if I can switch that up though.
Hope everybody is having a good week!
