Out Of Practice

I’ve missed life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop for a couple of months now, because I’ve been going out and about on the trail of wild megaliths across South Wales on the same day as the drawing sessions. But for the next three weeks, I’ll be hunting the ancient stones on a different day so I was back at life drawing this evening. And am I so out of practice!

I did 6 drawings of and the final one is half decent but it was hard work getting there. People who are not artists often have unrealistic expectations of what we do and expect us to be able to draw perfectly each and every time. I wish! It’s always a struggle and there are lots of mistakes and downright bad drawings. Ah well. Onward and upward.

    You did a great job. Don’t be so hard on yourself.

    I’d say this is a fabulous life drawing portrait. I love your bold strokes.

      Thank you, Sharon. I opened a new box of compressed charcoal and got very excited 😁
