Hello everyone! How was your week? Hope all good and safe!
Today is again Friday, and this means is time for an art recap for the week of24 April – May 1st. And let me tell you, so far this week was so so good! I got the chance to directly interact with some of my favorite artists on Instagram. My work has been seen by them, and got such nice words! For many, this may seem like nothing, but for me means the world! To be seen and encouraged by your favorite artists, even with small simple words, it’s worth so much that I can’t even explain. And all because FINALLY I had the courage to write to them in a simple comment that I love their work! For such a long time I was just being so afraid of writing something, of letting them know how their work influence my passion for drawing, that I thought I will never be able to interact with any of them. But I finally did it, and I am so happy for it! And yes, I am aware that this is just a rambling, a messy “journal”, but when it comes to my feelings, I am maybe the worst person to put them in words! So might as well get used to it, because it won’t change a lot 🙂
In terms of my drawings, I managed to make 3. The one on grey paper is made in colored pencils and I have tried to take my time and to have patience to slowly build the layers of color. I managed to do so for about the first 2 layers. At the 3rd one I started to ask myself why did I choose the colored pencils! So I just sped up the process, “rewarding” myself with a messy look for my drawing. By the way, I chose colored pencils because I love them! But again, what art supplies I do NOT love?! 😀
Anyway, enough with the rambling. Here are the drawings. Enjoy! And until next week, take care of yourselves!
