I’m not the best drawer. I’m much better at drawing rough outlines of shapes and then painting the detail. Painting comes much more naturally to me.
However, the other day I got some new pencils so decided to give some facial features a try – as let’s face it (excuse the pun), faces are a nightmare to draw unless you’re incredibly naturally gifted at drawing.
I’m not saying it’s fantastic (trust me I can pinpoint numerous errors after looking at it for five seconds) but I’m actually pretty impressed for a first time attempt – especially considering I’ve lost my rubber.
So I’m going to continue practising and learning and maybe even move onto a nose soon. I can tell you now with great confidence that that is going to be an absolute disaster.
Anyway, I’m off to purchase a rubber!
