Welcoming 2013 With New Confidence

drawing of Martin Freeman, actor

sketchbook page – brush markers

The other day I whining about how little progress I thought I had made over the last couple of years.  I’d been sick with a cold and generally whinging about everything I could think of.   Last night, since I felt better I got out my sketchbook to do more practice drew this drawing of actor Martin Freeman.  I remembered that I had done a drawing of Freeman in 2008  posted it here on the blog.  Wow, what a difference.  When I look back at that post, I realize that I have made progress with my drawing.

I tend to forget that with every drawing we make, there is progress.  So I plan to fill more sketchbook pages and not worry about progressing with drawing.  I’ve had enough experience to know that if I just keep going there will be bad drawings, but there will also be some good ones and eventually the good ones will get even bettter.

So Happy New Year everyone and happy drawing.

      Isn’t he great! Love seeing him on Sherlock. I haven’t seen any of the Hobbit movies yet. I’m waiting for them all to be finished.

        Sherlock is my favorite show!! (Along with Doctor Who!) I havent seen any hobbit movies either, they dont really interest me to be honest lol

        I agree. I was never much of a Lord of the Rings person.
