Both sketches have proportion and other issues (including the need for a darker pencil), but I’m reasonably happy with them for a first attempt. I drew my hand directly and the self-portrait from a selfie of half my face (yes, it was intentional). 🙂
The orange background was totally contrived. I just thought it might make a fun contrast with the blue vase. Kinda overpowering.
I haven’t drawn or painted anything for the last few weeks because I’ve been working on setting up a little business. I thought it was time to have another crack, so here it is.
God gives us imagination in order that we may help others imagine. Or put another way, he blesses us in order that we may bless.—Jon Bowles, Art & Faith
