graphite sketch 8"x10"
I hope everyone had a great holiday! Ours was the best, I couldn't have asked for anything better than two full days of just being at home and playing with my little family. I just wish it would have lasted longer.
But, now I'm dying to get out and go running again, to offset all the Christmas candy I've eaten. :)
This sketch is one of the studies for my portrait giveaway winner, Catie. I love her peaceful expression and the soft lighting on her face and hair. I also really like that smile she has, kind of like she has a secret about something.
I may be hit and miss around the blogosphere for the next week as I soak up all the time at home with my family.
Also, I have a large (and I mean LARGE) painting that I'm working on for a cool new exhibit that I must finish up right away! So, stay tuned for that.
It's different from what I've done before. It's a watercolor and it's a portrait, but it's on an entirely new surface for me (it's not watercolor paper).
This has got me thinking about trying new things, and also that I need to do that more.
So, here's a question for you: How often do you shake up your artistic routine? When was the last time you tried something new?
Have a great day everyone!
