I decided to challenge myself to draw and paint more in 2018. So here I am illustrating an Aesop's fable... which is stressing me out more than it probably should. I figure it's good to push yourself out of your comfort zone and I think I'm becoming addicted.
Anyway, here is what I have so far. I'm determined to finish all of the pictures I have in my head. Even if it takes all year. More to come...
Six weeks at home with my kids during the school holidays means I don't get very much of my work for Willowynn done... in fact I don't really even try to get any work done. I have been drawing though... which has been so nice. I think I'll try to spend more time drawing and painting this year... it's something I used to do all the time but dropped away once I had children.
I've finally made myself a doll to keep. I think I'll call her Fern. Sometimes I feel sad letting go of something I've put so much of myself into - so I've decided to hold on to this one. I've painted a moody forest inside an old drawer, like a diorama - I'll keep her there.
