My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

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.

Whoohooo for Suziblu

I got Suziblu's Self Guided Portrait course as a Christmas pressie but haven't done much about it as I haven't yet got all of the supplies... but I couldn't put it on hold for any longer so although I still need stuff I decided I will do what I can with what I have for now and do some simple graphite and/or coloured pencil work.

I adore Suziblu's style and her gorgeous artwork so I am going to have a ball with this course... I am hoping that I can follow her amazing tutorials but still develop a style of my own :-D  Wish me luck.

I'll tell you what though... I learned a lesson straight away...protect your work from your own fingers!!  The dark blobs on the side of my girlie's  left eye are from the oil on my fingers where I have touched the paper and the it has absorbed more of the graphite....aaaaargh.  In this instance it doesn't spoil my sketch too much but I am going to be ever so much more careful in future.
Thanks for looking
Chris xx
