pencil portraits

Finally finished!
I'm really pleased with it and making myself keep going was a good lesson.
Wee problem is that when I look at it on the easel, I can't quite believe I did it.
It's a little disconcerting.
Something to ponder on... why I feel like that I'm not sure.

makes me want to do more and that's gotta be a good thing.

new piece

This is the beginning of a 4 portrait piece.
I started it a very long time ago but had a confidence problem and was scared to carry on.
I'm quite pleased with it now.
Got to keep it up.
I seem to block myself again and again. Only to do the artwork, wonder what I was worried/scared about and feel so much better in myself.
It's almost as if I've found something I can do, something I get a great deal of satisfaction from and don't feel that I deserve it, so muck it up.
Definately got to work through this one as soon as possible.

This is for someone else and I feel I've let them down by not getting it finished ages ago.
I'm now really looking forward to handing over the finished piece.

Yes!, I can do this....
