 As much as I love to get away in the winter- I always have the dilemma of what my art will look like when we travel in our motorhome. What kind of consistent practice can I get excited about- and more importantly- stick with? I joined Sktchy and am taking a class called Drawing Faces with France Van Stone.I’m jumping around the lessons which is fun; sometimes we draw with Procreate (where I’m learning a lot), but mostly it’s graphite. This drawing was not from the class but a photo of my sister. I picked this one because she was smiling, and I wanted the challenge!

These eyes are from a lesson, but the ones on the bottom right are from a photo of me. Self portrait coming ….?!

 Glad I got this portrait of my grandson done- as he has cut his hair and donated it all to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. Way to go Aidan- an example that his Mom has set more than once! His hair was absolutely gorgeous, thick, blonde and wavy! Working more on drawing lately, will share in next post.
