Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Umbrella, ombrelle, parasol, parapluie, they all say one thing…sketch me!

An umbrella is easy to draw..right? DING! Wrong!

So many things to consider:   Convex, concave, round, shadows, transparency, folds, foreshortening, colour, patterns…

A good challenge!

  1. There is something so charming about umbrellas. I’m not sure what it is, the skirt-like femininity, the carousel-like gaiety? Lovely colors and sketches, Ronelle.

    You did it, again, Ronelle. I need to look at these over and over just like Monique.
    Thank you so much.

  5. Great work – it doesn’t look like you had trouble drawing them. Refreshing colors and lots of vibrancy in the splatters and blobs of color :)
