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.

Day 13 – 30 Days of Art. 

So I’m nearly at the half way mark. I am starting to see some improvement in proportions and being able to use my eraser a little less than usual. I’ve still got lots to work on. 

I love insects. The colours and the way their bodies are shaped are really interesting. I’ve started looking at a few different types just to get a feel for how they work. I’m using reference photos from Pinterest for my practice sketches. However for the art that I sell I use my own photos or what is in my head. I have been looking at some of the free image sites and I’ll start using those soon.

My other half loves cars so I started practicing All ready for sports day! It’s those. I am hoping to draw something cool for his birthday which is coming up very shortly! 


The original fairy drawing I used Spectrum Noir Markers on cotton paper and I am incredibly happy with the result. If you would like to purchase a print of my gorgeous fairy please visit my etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist
