It was six years ago I decided to start teaching myself how drawing. I went to Michael’s and brought my first sketchbook along with some other supplies just to experiment for fun. The last time I was serious about art was in high school. Remembering what I learned from high school I used that information as my starting point. Drawing a oval like egg shape and dividing the shape on where the eyes would go, the nose and the month. My drawing weren’t that great, but I could only get better with practice.
Now at the beginning of August 2020, I started my 3rd sketchbook where I just draw portraits. Looking over my drawing I can see that my drawing are closely resembling the actual person in the photo reference I use. Practice, even though this is just my 3rd sketchbook where I focus on drawing portrait, I’ve also practiced drawing them in my journals including add watercolor. I still have much to improve and learn. Learning on your own has it challenges, but it also make it fun.
