Finished drawing, and new projects
When I was thinking about this next piece I was earlier debating on my choice of media, and I almost immediately moved away from pencil. Though there is nothing wrong with it and it's where I started out, I just don't like it as much as charcoal and colored pencil anymore. Right now I'm also really enjoying the challenge of colored pencil and vibrant color. I've been seeking to challenge myself with my new work, working larger, seeking things that really challenge me in a composition.
Anyway tomorrow I should be spraying my last piece with fixative so I can clear the board for new work. I think I'll make my deadline March 31, and we'll see if I can stick with that. I'm really trying to focus on building my portfolio this year and I feel my monthly deadline will really help that. Though my goal is for 11 drawings by the end of the year it would be nice to exceed that.
