Day 21 – 30 Days of Art

HAIR! I’ve started learning about how to draw hair! It’s much harder than it looks and with limited supplies it is even harder to try and get the realism effect. However, I think for me first try it was a great attempt. My favourite is probably the bun. I know her ear is too small but I’m chuffed how my practice went. Again I didn’t have a regency photo to go by. I watched a you tube video and then off I went. 

The you tube video I watched was by Emmy Kalia here is the link to her video. https://youtu.be/QRJ5phXy3xo

Day 20 – 30 Days of Art 

I love this graphite sketch. It’s one of my favourites so far. I didn’t have a reference photo for this one so I kinda had to wing it. The drawing itself gives the impression of movement so I’ve called this piece ‘Girl Dancing’. She is now available as a print in my etsy store.  https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist


I love to watch the birds in our garden. One of many visitors to our little but beautiful part of paradise.

Day 19 – 30 Days of Art

I get so much inspiration from my lovely kids. They are such a joy to be around. This is my little princess. Again I have lots to work on but I’m getting there! I think I have the proportions right, I just need to refine my skills using graphite. It’s a little clumsy. 

The below painting is an autumn tree that I painted a little while ago. I love autumn, it’s my favourite season. 


This painting and many more are available in my Etsy Store.

Day 18 – 30 Days of Art

So for Day 18 I’ve done yet more faces. The scribble face is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is to help loosen up and reduce the need for an eraser. I enjoyed drawing it and trying not to lift my pencil off the paper. I’m now ready to start drawing from pictures. The second face is another face from my imagination. 


A poppy I painted a while ago. This and many other paintings and prints are in my Etsy Store. Go check them out!!

Day 17 – 30 Days to Art

EYES EYES EYES!!!!!! It’s all about the eyes! I love these drawings, I think I’ve done a great job and I can’t wait to put them into some sketches. I took some advice from an Art teacher friend of mine and have started drawing each different component of the face. Noses were first and now eyes. I need to work on my hair and my lips as well.

Day 16 – 30 Days of Art

Day 16 is all about faces!!! I’ve watched a few you tube videos by the Art Sherpa and now I’m ready to rock. So the first 2 sketches are only average but I love my first finished face painting. I also like the words that go with it. I do need to believe in myself more, I have to have faith that I can do this. 

The below picture is where I’m at with my kids portrait. I’ve got a long way to go but I’m happy with the progress so far! My painting is coming along nicely and so is my drawing with graphite. I’m very pleased with my progress thus far.

Day 15 – 30 Days of Art 

Faces and noses…….. it’s time I got serious about this art thing. I’m determined to draw and my angels perfectly! I’m really happy with my sketches today! They are really lovely. I think they’ve improved greatly. Thanks to the Art Sherpa’s you tube videos! If you are looking to improve your skills, watch her and others on you tube! 

Tip: you need to practice drawing what you see, not what your mind thinks you see! This is more difficult than you would think! 

I think it’s important to continue learning new skills, no matter how old you are. It’s certainly helped me get through some really un-happy times. 

You can find videos of me in action on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/chrissyturleyartist and also on my Instagram at www.instgram.com/chrissyturley30.
