9 x 12 on Smooth Bristol Board, Graphite H - 9B
Been working on this for the last couple weeks. It's definitely my favorite to date. Anytime I worked on it (short, hour long bursts due to lack of free time) it felt like I only completed a tiny section (2"x2"). But I just kept chipping away, if I felt I wasn't into it, I stopped. For fear of messing it up. I have a tendency at rushing through the end of a drawing just for the sake of finishing. What winds up happening is that I rush it and mess up horribly in the very end. I am trying to vow to myself, to stop doing that. Put it down and come back, when patience has returned.
I really have been sitting back, studying art from those I admire and find inspiration from, and absorbing technique. I think I now have found my passion, style, and feel I am turning a new page. I feel real good in my life and I have a few of you to thank for it, as well as my amazing husband. So thank you for your art and imagination. You all inspire and amaze me.
