One of those days today with very little time to do much, so I decided to just try out some sketching. Its called sad sketching as I am sad today, dont worry nothing drastic or earth shattering, just yet another occasion of people I thought were friends and could trust turning out to be not what they seemed - I can never understand how people can be so nasty to others, does it make them happy? What irritates me more is why I am always so suprised by this.
Anyway, as it turned out this lack of quality time and miseries turned out to be quiet good, well I think so (for me). Remember not so long ago I couldnt manage a matchstick man/woman. So, before I totally distroy these works with paint (not quite got to grips with that yet) I thought I had better take their picture of how they started, in order of my days practice. The first one was mainly 'eyes practice' and just to be sure I didnt ruin her with paint I coloured her in with coloured pencil for a change.
The next one is a real features practice, not happy with the noses I do, so been trying to improve them. Couldnt decide what to dress her in so she matches me today, going to try painting her in the next day or so.
The last one I was quite pleased with, this is the look I am trying to achieve - now whether or not I can do it again remains to be seen, and what happens to the poor girl once I attack her with paint is another point - but still I like her so far.
So that was my arty day today, still not finished the orange peril - my supplies didnt turn up till today and not enough time on Thurs/Fri/Sat to do much - also now wondering whether to add one of my ladies to it... decisions, decisions...
Think I might do some more sketching this evening. Sorry I havent been on any forums today, will try catch up in a day or so when feeling brighter.
Hope everyone is having a great and productive time.
