My endless collection of portraits I’ve drawn of my mom continues to grow! As I drew this, I was looking at a piece by Matisse and thought how nice it’d be to paint his shapes on my wall one day.
My teacher told me I cared too much about my work, so she made me draw only on ripped up/crumbled paper that day.
Recently I’ve been looking at some of Monet’s paintings, trying to study and use his color palettes. This painting was one of the tests!
I’ve been drawing more hands than usual recently. When I mentioned this to someone, they said maybe I was looking for a helping hand. For some reason, I can’t get that thought out of my head.
My baby cousin Lyla was just born, and already she is too beautiful for words. Her mama sent me a mailed letter the other day, and I got so excited because I never receive any handwritten letters.
You are my sweet deer :)
