I mean it's one thing to draw a nose, two eyes and a mouth … it's a whole different bag of bananas to actually capture a likeness.
I struggle with this … BIG TIME!!
So I turned to my nearest and dearest to be my musey style models … and it's safe to say they were ALL less than impressed with the results.
Master 16 made a kind suggestion, "Mum … (long-suffering sigh) … some people have talent drawing people … and some don't … I think you should just stick to drawing things".
He could well be right!
But nevertheless I decided to share the results anyway … cause that's just the type of person I am … a chronic over sharer.
If it's any consolation to those folk around here … hating their portraits … I'm not particularly fond of mine either.
The moral of the story?
Sometimes practise makes perfect … and sometimes it just proves you should quit while you're ahead.
