My best friend’s dog, Pearl. I’m visiting my friend and Pearl jumped up beside me. I decided to try and draw her. I’ve never drawn a dog before, so this was new to me.
Friend took a selfie and I decided to try and sketch it. Came out decent, but I would like to try again. It’s not exactly proportional. Still, I like it.
Self-portrait ~ Stefani Lara. Nothing dramatic. Took a selfie at the Dallas World Aquarium on Tuesday. Decided to try an sketch it out. Came out better than I expected.
I’ve been considering starting an art blog for sometime, a place to showcase my work. I’m in no respect an accomplished artist. Honestly, I’m not much of an artist.
I have no illusion of selling any of my pieces. I may never get to that point, but that’s not really my goal, at least short term. I’ve only started painting and sketching fairly recently. I began a little over a year ago. I can’t devote too much time to it, but I do what I can, when I can.
I still fancy myself a writer, and I hope to publish something one day. In the meantime, I draw because I can create. Sometimes it’s something original, sometimes I sketch something I see online. If so, it’s definitely not something I can sell. It’s simply an exercise so I can improve my technique.
