Hello! Thanks for visiting!
Today I went back to work after Spring Break and I am just getting home now. Tomorrow I will have an extra long day as I will be staying to teach acrylic painting classes after school.
To hold myself accountable for the continuous sketchbook studies I have committed to doing, I am posting them here. Here are some feet drawings I worked on last weekend. I still have a long way to go and will make sure to practice anatomical elements whenever I have a chance. Honestly, I hadn't drawn feet in years. I don't even know if I had ever actually tried to draw feet in any realistic way. I'm pretty happy I did.
I am currently working on a watercolor painting of an old Corvette and will be posting pictures I am taking throughout the process. Stay tuned for that! :)
Hey all! Thanks so much for visiting today!
As I had mentioned in a previous post, I am doing some sketchbook studies every day in order to practice different head angles and/or more dynamic human poses. If you are interested in seeing these as I am producing them, please follow me on Instagram (icon in the sidebar to the right).
I am doing my best to dedicate time to both drawing and painting everyday because I want to improve in both areas. My husband probably thinks I am going crazy because I am using SO much of my Spring Break studying other artist's videos, drawing and painting. I could spend the entire day doing this (which isn't the best because other things require my attention as well). It's just very hard for me because, usually, so much of my time goes to my full-time job or getting mentally ready for the roller-coaster that is teaching, that I don't have as much time to do what I want to do in the evenings. Also I feel like I have to take advantage of this time now because, when I get back to my full time job on the 24th, I'll be so consumed with my students' end-of-year Art Exhibit that I am going to loose a lot of time in which I could be progressing with my own work.
Nonetheless, the school year will end in the beginning of June and I'll be back to it full steam. I also have to keep in mind that this is my last year in my full-time teaching position and I have to enjoy it as much as I possibly can. After this school year ends, I will have to excuses and will start on my own Etsy shop and YouTube channel projects!
See what I am up to on:
