Yesterday

Yesterday was an incredibly creative day for me. As exhausted as I was after mixing all that plaster and applying it to the wood, I had the urge to do some drawing last night too.




This is Seaneen. Isn't she beautiful? I love her little face and big eyes.

Ok, so maybe my first portrait wasn't a fluke? But I still only have the confidence to draw them in my little sketch book. Looking at my drawing now, I can see things that I should have done differently, but every new piece is part of a learning process and I'm sure/I hope I'll improve with practice. I think what I need to work on next is hair - I'm so lazy when it comes to the hair!


Back to the Footprints piece tonight. I shall prime the sea area with gesso and decide what to do about the sand area.


Edit, Friday morning: Well I didn't do my gesso-ing last night; I was too exhausted. But I decided to give Seaneen some shoulders instead of leaving her head floating around on the page!
