Friday sketches / Esboços à Sexta - 6

The first is the one that became the previous work.
The others... Wish I could be painting them right now!
O primeiro é o que deu origem ao trabalho anterior.
Os outros... Quem me dera estar já a pintá-los!

Nice sketches. In the third sketch, I can imagine the boy's toy cars to be 50's vintage Ferraris or maybe a Mercedes Gull Wing Coupe (I like old cars).

Old car toys are always gorgeous, so maybe I'll make these to look like it :))

wohoo! like a peek through tissue wrapping paper at the gifts to come.

Paulo J. Mendes said...

I'm so happy with these sketches that they're very likely to be the next to paint :)

Hi Paulo, I like the way you type the English and then Portuguese, I'm assuming. I can translate a little, not much though. My Grandmother was Portuguese/Spanish. I think these drawings are going to be awesome once you get going on them. The homes always look so inviting even without paint I want to walk inside and make myself a cafecito. Thx for sharing.

Hi, Gloria, I am surprised and curious about your Iberian family background. Maybe you could catch a few words on the text, as some of them are common to both languages. It's a funny coincidence, as I had a Spanish Grandmother too.
I am looking forward to start these drawings: Hopefully if I succeed to paint them nicely, maybe you can feel the unmistakable cafecito smell :)
