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.

Sketching again....

I go from one obsession to another but sometimes it's only a matter of changing the tools.  Doodling or sketching... the only difference is pens to pencils and maybe a little bit more time and patience... so right now I'm jumping from one to the other depending on my mood.  I don't always finish a sketch for months... I begin and get to a place when I like what I see and then can't be bothered to finish 

Hair is usually the stopper... after I've been sucked in to the concentration needed to do the facial details I think urggghhh I've had enough now.  Don't want to finish the barnett!!  So I give my ladies a name and then tell them to go hide somewhere until I'm in the right frame of mind to give them a hairdo. 
I guess if I worked from reference photos it would be easier but I kinda like seeing who pops up from my imagination.  It's cool to see those features turn into a 'person'  even when sometimes they aren't as 'pretty' as I may have liked (although I do like this one). 
So for now this little lady will remain as she is... one day I may go back and finish her hair... may even give her a different hairdo altogether but I'm not

Gorgeously ab fab! :)
Now here is a radical thought...some of your beautiful ladies might be capable of carrying off the no hair look...just like the lady that was in one of the Star Trek movies;) Have a great arty day.
