The first four doodles are from my sketchbook. Years ago (that would be between 5-10 years ago), I used to devoutly keep sketchbooks. I’d store drawings at all stages of completion, flowers, articles, poems and so on that I found to be beautiful. My time studying at art school destroyed that habit, but I want to try again.
The final drawing was the piece I mentioned last week, and I am unhappy with it. The colouring is rotten no matter how hard I tried to replicate the reference photo. I usually don’t share work I am not proud of, but I figure I need to share my mistakes or I won’t learn from them. It won’t be making it to my DeviantArt page.
I am going to try and update every Wednesday. Even if I don’t have any finished work to show, I do have drawings in my sketchbooks and works in progress I can share.
I do like self portraits. I lack confidence when it comes to drawing human subjects, but I don’t have to worry about offending myself with an unflattering portrait. 🙂 Sharing this portrait with me is the wolf pelt which I have written about in my animism/spiritual blog. I’m not sure when I will finish this piece. My wrists are really painful today, and I had to force myself to get this far.
