We have more lip practice today. I’m really proud of how far I’ve come. No matter how far I still have to go. I am really loving Graphite. It gets a little messy but I love it. For the next 4 days of my 30 Day Art Challenge I will be producing 2 pieces. One Acrylic Landscape of Stretched Canvas and one Family Graphite Portrait. I’m really excited to see how they come out.
If you would like to see all of my the pieces that I have created, go to my etsy shop – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist
I have 2 competitions running in my Facebook and Instagram pages. Go and check them out for your chance to win a free print!
Lips, lips and more lips. It’s all fine and dandy to be able to draw things straight on. If I want to be really good, I need to be able to draw things on angles too!

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.

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.

Here’s a little extra piece I’ve started!
Thank you for all your kind support,
Today I’ve been looking in one of my bridal magazines. I’m engaged to a gorgeous and handsome Welsh bloke and we’ve been engaged 2 years now. We still have no date for our wedding but that hasn’t stopped me looking and dreaming about how our perfect wedding will look. 🙂 I love drawing hands. This maybe why I love doing nails so much. Hands can have so much character and they always tell a story of their life.
Of course I’m drawing, sketching and this time using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I haven’t used them much, and the paper I’m using probably isn’t the best for them but, you gotta use what you got sometimes. Drawing people are another skill that needs to be improved upon! But at least I’m no longer afraid to do it. WIN!!!

Isabelle’s eyes! This kid of mine is just amazing. She’s sweet and kind and clever. And her eyes just as amazing. So, I’m not great at faces. I do need to work on them – a lot! I’m breaking them down to components and then I’ll try to put them all together.
Here are my angels eyes, not perfectly done but I don’t think it’s a bad go. I especially love the purple eye were I have only used red, blue and white Acrylic paint to produce this. I am fascinated with only using 3 colours to create a painting.

So today I decided that I need to make a little bit of a plan so I didn’t run out of ideas! I practiced a little bit of lettering and did a little bit of a sketch of my while sitting at the table.
I think when doing something like this you need to be able to look at your own work and assess it. There’s no point just doing the same thing thinking you don’t need to improve. You need to be able to critisize your own work. Then you need to make sure you don’t beat yourself up too much. Learning a new skill takes time, it takes patience and it takes confidence.
