A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Sketch journal page2
One of the fun parts of trying out sketching different faces is that they always end up looking so completely unlike what I imagine they will. I am not working from reference photos yet... I guess that I will do this at a later date... I quite like the surprise at the end of my sketching so for now I am just going with the flow :D
It would be really freaky if I came across anyone in real life who actually looks similar to one of my drawings...ooooer. I think I liked this one better before I added colour ... I used normal coloured pencils this time... liked them better than the pastel pencils.
I am getting better every day... though it may not look like it to you...lol
You will see as the days go on. It is definitely right that the more you do something... the better you become and the easier it gets. I am trying to leave the mistakes I've made just so I can look back myself and see what I have achieved in future weeks. Sometimes I just don't see that something isn't right until I look at the finished sketch and then it's too late to erase it anyway.
No matter.... I am learning to love my art... warts and all :D
