First Drawing in a Year
I was forced to get a regular job a year ago. Because of the hours of the job and the long commute to and from work, I was not able to actually do any art work for the entire time I was employed there. Last Friday was my last day. So, I once again have time to get back into the things that I so love doing.
A friend of ours asked me to do a portrait of her poodle. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous about the work. I have never done animals before and the prospect of drawing a poodle with lots of curly hair was a bit daunting. But I bit the bullet this morning and dove into it. I am rather pleased with the results, however, as the artist I see lots of room for improvement. The good news is I learned a great deal. Everyone, meet Sydney.
