This week's Scribble Picnic is "Fill in the blank" and that blank is in the shape X.  The above is another a piece I have started a while back that I just kind of kept redrawing without much coloring. For more Scribble Picnic, go here.

  1. Wonderful ladies, I think they are sisters. I like looking at the details. You are gifted at adding lots of details to add to the story.

    1. they are sisters, I had posted this piece before at another blog with a little blur about them keeping & framing stories/fairytales that perhaps are about their ancestors. I've updated the post with the previous version.

      thank you for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  4. I love your ladies and having tea seems delightful, but try as I may, I can't find an X . Doesn't matter though, this is a delight!

    1. the x would be the chair pattern, it's sort of subtle, click on the first/top image to seee the larger version.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

  5. What a nice family project for these sisters! It took me a bit to see how you incorporated X– but there it is!

  6. I finally found the X and didn't see it at first as I was looking for an X within a square but that might not have been clear to all. As it is, the pink pattern totally reminds me of a high end place for tea in London called, Shell, I think. So fun. I seem to recall this piece in a different form earlier, right? It's the pics on the wall I recall. And I love how the people in the frames seem to be related, the red heads to the redhead sister and the asian to the black haired woman who is so beautiful and poised up front sipping her tea. Hope we get to see this all coloured in one day perhaps? Great job, Lissa. Thank yo. Sorry I took a while to get here. I have to make time to really study your illustrations before feeling I can give a worthy enough comment. :)

    1. yeah, I guess I sort of assume it is just the x and not the box with the x. I was wrong.

      yes, this is an old piece that I never got around to finishing and still not finished. the third image is the first draft. & yes, the girls does have some elements that are in the framed photos.

      thanks for coming by, have a lovely day.

    2. Hope we get to see it all wrapped up. :) No worries on the X. Totallyunderstandable and the X was main bit anyway.

  7. I love how you used the x's as tufts for your beautiful chairs. I think it really shows creativity. I'm having fun going back and forth with your renditions to see what the little changes are.

    1. the changes to the new version is mostly to the sisters as I thought the sisters looked like they were too synchronized and too alike so I decide to give them a little more individualize features. & I switched out two framed images.

      actually it is nice to compare the versions as the first version/draft is done last year. when compare to what I thought of then and now, it's very different but back then, I really did like how the sisters are looking alike and now not so much.

      have a lovely day.
