I’m learning so much while doing these drawings that I don’t want to stop.
I worked hard on this one and achieved a really good drawing of Christopher Reeve, but unfortunately I missed the whole point.
In today’s portrait session I decided to try acrylic, at first I thought it would be fun, but I found it very frustrating.
