Daily Chat April 16
Good morning all!
I hope you guys are doing great and are able to get a little art in today..for those of you who have been down and out and unable to get any drawings or paintings done I hope things improve for you quickly.
I woke up with a massive headache and what feels like a headcold..though I don't know..it could be allergies or related to pressure changes. Its a cold day here today. I took some meds so hoping it mellows out enough so I can draw at lunch.
I started my next drawing yesterday. I am afraid this one is going to be a challenge. The horse is at a funky angle and the kid ... well people aren't my favorite things to draw ... I have to do well on this so am going to take my time and try to do it right. Maybe I will share it today..maybe not..it's in what I would call a "hot mess" stage. It looks really really bad. I need to work on my lines a bit more I think. I don't usually have this many issues with the outline. Maybe because I feel pressured to make this one special that it's not working out so well. I need to back up and calm down and approach it like my other drawings.
I just got asked by another person if I would do a drawing for him so, at the moment, after I finish this drawing, I have 3 more drawings lined up to do. This is my last one that will involve a horse though. The rest are just portraits of people. It's ironic that as much as I do NOT like drawing portraits it's what I get asked to do the most. I hate turning people away though and try to do my best for them.
Terry..I look forward to seeing more of your work today. I just adore your goat..I wouldn't mess with those horns if I was you. Maybe tweaking the nose a bit. The nose isn't folded..that's just shadows..I see that now. You are doing a stellar job. Keep it up.
