Update on 30 Days of Drawing

I am finding this "30 Days of Drawing" less stressful than the last.  I am trying to focus on ideas and pieces of a drawing rather than a completing "perfect drawing".  I am mainly copying photographs and other drawings in order to learn the "vocabulary" of the female face.  But hopefully, I will be able to draw "out of my head" one day.

This is a copy of a watercolor by Emma Leonard, who is an awesome illustrator.  I'm hoping to break out the water colors soon.

I went on vacation last week and lost my pencil, so I resorted to ball point pen.  It actually made me feel even less stressed, because I had to incorporate every line.  The next one is a drawing of Jennifer Morrison from a photograph.  She's much prettier in real life.

The rhythm of drawing every day has made me want to make more "art".  I really think creating breeds creativity and discipline breeds discipline.  So, I am going to make a new shirt or dress each day for the next couple of weeks.  I will hopefully have a new top to show you tomorrow.  Gotta go sew...
