So instead of putting up just the finished piece I decided to post a few of the images that I took while trying to draw this one. One of the things that I wanted to achieve with this doodle-a-day challenge was to improve my technique when sketching. Improvement only comes with practice so for this doodle I decided to try and draw something that really challenged me. I’m not a 100% happy with how it looks after the water-colour pencils but that’s something I can work on throughout the year and hopefully get right on a future piece.
Doodling from some of the Christmas cards still around my house.
Alongside my writing I decided to have a go at the doodle-a-day challenge to try and improve my drawing skills a little more. Nothing special, just a few random bits and bobs for today. A salt shaker, a glass, an eye, what’s supposed to be my thumb and the design from my engagement ring.
