My Portrait Drawing Challenge 30 in 30 days...My Progress

Hello Friends!

Thank you in advance for taking a look at my progress with my drawing challenge...as many portraits as I can fit in ...   in 30 days.  As promised in my earlier blog I'll be posting my progress.  Because of the holidays it's going to take me longer than 30 days to get these 30 portraits in but I've been fortunate to continue to get volunteers.  Thanks for taking the time!

Loving the Exercise and A New Still Life

I'm taking an online portrait class and loving it.  I am really feeling like I am re-learning some of the basics.  This has been a great week.  I have contacted friends and family and people I attend church with to ask for volunteers to help me with the Unit Exercises concerning drawing.  The drawing below is my first one.  The goal is approximately 30 portraits from life in 30 days.  I don't think I'll be painting on weekends because of other commitments but so far have scheduled people for a full two weeks.  It's going to be fun.  I've told the people who agree to sit for me that I will give them the drawings when I finish.  I'm learning so much...and will start posting my progress.  Hope you will take a look when you can and let me know if you see improvement.
