A couple of years ago my man's grandmother died and he took home
her old art supplies. It's been a couple of decades since I last
held a crayon in my hand, or a pencil for drawing for that matter.
I'm not sure why I stopped, I guess I discovered boys or something...
Then I read about the 29 faces challenge on Debi's blog. I was restless
and a bit tipsy, with my craft room recently organized, so I thought why not?
The old art supplies are very dry and I only have thin stationery paper
but these are my practice faces, or '5-minute-art' as I like to call them.
Spriggan, Pain, Vengeance and Lizard Lady.
I have already learned a few things from picking up the crayons:
When I was younger I preferred to draw in black and white, but this time
I'm discovering colors. Back then I was a bit obsessed with female beauty,
something I care less about at this age. And lastly, I realize that I'm influenced
by computer gaming, something that barely existed 20 years ago.
I don't know if I can commit to 29 faces in February, I do have an issue
with not finishing things, running out of steam half way.
But so far I am enjoying the experiment, even if I'm very rusty.
