Yesterday while the kids were at school I nervously got out my drawing gear. I tried to do a portrait and I could feel right away it was going to be a frustrating experience, so I stopped and decided to take it down to something much more basic...
Meet Mort, Brandon's wind-up chick. Even though he isn't real, he's about the cutest chick I've ever seen. His feet didn't turn out well in the picture, but I am extremely pleased with how he looks.
The way in which I draw requires a tremendous amount of focus, and I can't be interrupted, which is why I don't do it with the kids around. I put on my Yanni CD (In My Time), and before I know it time has escaped and a drawing has appeared.
|Me with my muse...had such a hard time getting him to sit still!|
Thank you all so much for your encouragement, it was very much needed and even more appreciated!
