Drawing has been on the back burner too long and I wanted to go back to learning as much as I can. My last major challenge which had to be put on hold was portraits and I really wanted to explore that properly.
The hardest part of drawing for me is staring at a blank sheet and getting started so a bigger project should hopefully get things moving again.
The aim of this challenge is to find out:
- Is it easier to draw someone you know and love?
- Can I draw without overworking?
- Should I just stick to animals?
The photo I have chosen to draw is one of my favourites from my wedding day. It was taken by the very talented Jason Roseweir. http://www.roseweirphotography.co.uk/
This is my beautiful grandson meeting his new step-great-grandma (that's a mouthfull). I love the expression on his face!!
Here is how the first drawing session went (excuse the quality - it is too big for my scanner)
Now.....I have to get the detail in without going to far!!
It does feel good to be back drawing properly though!
