|I think she looks younger, but still not my little Miss P. Also I think her gaze is too far to the right (her left).|
I probably should have called it a day then, but I decided the lines were bugging me too much, so I tried to sketch this new version onto printer paper. Now I wish I'd used better paper as I think I would like to try adding color.
Still not really looking like her, but I think she looks a bit younger. I like the shading better, too.
Here is the original sketch for comparison.
This morning I am planning to jog for an hour on the treadmill and then get ready for the day. I will go to the life drawing class - thank you so much for the suggestions about focusing on hands and feet. I surely can use my own or the hubster's for practice. I think it was a good suggestion to continue to work on the "whole" figure and so I shall.
I am reading "Open" an autobiography by Andre Agassi and am quite enjoying it. I've always been a big fan of his. I've also downloaded the ebook "Falling Backward" a memoir by Jann Arden, a Canadian born singer/songwriter that I am a big fan of. I know I am not supposed to end a sentence with "of" but sometimes breaking rules is what I like to do. I love my iPad and am quite enjoying using it as a reader.
I hope you are well and that you are finding time for yourself today - again, I want to thank my readers, especially those of you who leave comments for helping me so much with your suggestions. I love this art community.
