Ok so my portrait attempt this week… I think THIS has been the hardest yet. Drawing yourself is an odd feeling, but its all about learning and practicing at the moment. Arlo and I have been doing a big clean out of our house this weekend… I shall let you know why later this week!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend! X Bec

I spent hours trying to get Hana’s sneaky little smile in this portrait and I’m still not sure I quite got it! X Bec
Well guys here it is, portrait number two! This is of one of my best friends little son, Ewen. He is the happiest little guy around and I love how his smile lights up a room. Hopefully I’ve captured that in the drawing. Enjoy! X Bec
For aaages Ive been wanting to know how to draw portraits, not in depth perfect fancy ones but even just a quick sketch of someones face, or the silhouette of a body. As I was browsing blogs the other day, I came across a cool idea on this blog where the artist Scott is doing 100 portraits and getting his fans involved. SO inspirational and he really is doing some of the best portraits Ive ever seen so make sure you pop over to his blog :)
So im going to make it one of my resolutions… Once a week I will draw someones portrait… because as they say, practice makes perfect!
Heres the first one I’ve done, of our old dog Bob. As you can tell Im only just starting out but I hope to be amazing by the end of my mission!
P.S If anyone wants me to attempt one of them, send in an image of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org and I shall give it a go then post it up the following week!
