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

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.

This weeks in the spot light is a print of my light house painting.
I love storms, grey skies, thunder, lightening and wind. I love watching the savage storms we get in Australia. The original painting was inspired by the recent cyclone to hit the coast of Queensland. This light house on a cliff is representing how tough we Aussies are.

So last night I was practising faces…. and my son had a tantrum because he couldn’t sit and watch me as it was bed time. The poor little tyke was devastated and tired….. very, very tired! He eventually settled down and went to bed.
The things us mums have to do just to get some art practice in! 😂😂😂😂😂 I think I’m getting better at this portrait thing…. what do you reckon?

See ya soon,
Today I will be placing my painting of Solitude in the spot light. Love this painting. I love the ‘quietness’ of it. The thought of being in a cabin somewhere remote under a beautiful night sky all alone makes me feel calm and relaxed.
What would you do if you had the chance to get away? I’d be reading, hiking and just generally letting my mind wander. Of course I’d have my camera and my art journal with me. I wouldn’t want to miss anything inspiration that I would find.
If you would like to purchase Solitude, here is the direct link to my etsy listing.
