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 14 – 30 Days of Art 

As you can see, I am still having trouble with faces! Argh! It’s driving me mad! I think it might be time to do a little more research  into them! You-tube tonight it is! 

Fairies again! I love fairy art. Fantasy art is something that I would like to become better at. I love all those kinds of things. I love reading about fairies and vampires and all things magical. The worlds of Harry Potter and the likes really make me happy and get my imagination started! 

I found this writing in google and I absolutely love it! I love getting creative with writing.

Day 10 – 30 Days of Art

Flowers! My favourite flowers in the whole world are lilies! I love the different colours. So I thought I might draw a few different types of flowers. I obviously need to work on shading but I like the general shape of them all. While researching flowers I was so surprised at the amount of different kinds of orchids there are,and the different colours they come in! WOW!!

Below, is the start of a portrait I’m doing of my monkeys. It’s my ‘take my time’ piece that I hope to finish. If you’ve been reading my posts then you know faces elude me. So I think this will be a great help for me to improve my skills. I think it’s really important to tackle the things you find the hardest head on. There is no point sticking your head in the sand!

Art and Tantrums…….

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?
