Today’s sketch is based on another photo from the Something to Draw website. It was a photo of a young child submitted by someone called Sean Hawkey. I wasn’t quite able to get the colouring to look right and I think I still have problems with accidentally aging children. I also have a bit more to learn about how to shade effectively with watercolours and possibly just how to shade a human face in general.
Still it was good practice making another attempt at a portrait of a small child. I haven’t done one of these in a while. I think it may also be my first time drawing a child who I don’t actually know personally so it was a bit of a different experience.
I’m aiming to get to sleep while it’s actually still today for a change. Another new experience but I’ve been so tired today that I was basically non-functional. This picture is basically my big effort for the day. Now I’m just going to go to bed and hope to do better tomorrow.
