(MY FIRST ATTEMPT)
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to practice, practice … practice some more. I’m a little behind ticking items off my list. This is the first face I’ve tried to draw other than Vincent’s (and that was for Winterfest last year). And I was too late with it to submit it to CABB’s Father project, which I hope everyone has seen – it’s really special. (Look for it in the Great Hall Library.)
I hope you recognize the subject!
You’re always so generous and encouraging. Thank you!
That’s a really good Father, Carole! It’s hard to believe that’s one of your first attempts at a face. You have stacks of drawings hiding away somewhere that you’re hiding from us, don’t you? 😀
Keep drawing, please. You obviously have a talent for this. I’m eager to see what’s next.
LOL, I have a pretty good snail and a decent parakeet I could show folks, a penguin, a horse, and a panda bear – that’s as far as I went in my little book of lessons last year. I really do want to get back to trying. Thank you for encouraging me!
Beautiful job Carole!
Thanks, Laura Beth! It’s a stretch for me, but if I don’t try now, when will I? I’m grateful for the ‘safe place’ of our tunnels walls.
Thank you, Heather! I was thinking about Roy – and Father – and just wanted to try. If mouths (and ears and eyes) weren’t so difficult, I might have made him a little more smiley. (I probably had the same tense set to my own lips while I smudged and erased and erased some more.)
Well done! Great to see you stretch, and inspire others to do so. The more you try, the better you get as many before you show us. This fandom is something else!
Thanks, Pat! I’ve always said I couldn’t draw, but in actuality I’d never tried. I was pre-limiting myself! And that’s no fun. I’m anxious, as you might imagine, to put a wobbly first effort out there, but … facing my fears … ?
Carole, you did the right thing! I think we all set our own limits on ourselves, and then sometimes never realize what it is we can really do! Kudos to you for jumping in, and giving it a go. The results are lovely!
Thanks, Cindy. I’m figuring I’ll always mimic rather than create. (I used a drawing of Chan’s and a painting by Gail Bennet to go by, and I’m sure that would make their eyes go wide, LOL. ) But nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? And I do like to shop the art supply stores, even if I don’t know what to do with the stuff. 🙂
Oh! What a great surprise!
I surprised myself a little, Claire, more because I dared to post it than thinking it might sorta, kinda, might maybe resemble the intended character. I hit the publish button holding my breath!
Wow! Yes, please keep drawing! 🙂
