So the next two pictures on the 30 day challenge were “your favourite animal” and “your favourite place.”
I skipped the latter and went direct to best friend, because place is going to be a watercolour and I need to source a bit more material.
Excuses notwithstanding, I wasn’t entirely happy how my favourite animal – the insuppressible Staffy Holly, came out in round 1.
So I had another go, which was a bit better I think. I didn’t need to smudge this one. Smudging always reminds me of the damper pedal on the piano – it’s kind of a cheats way of making things sound (look) better.
This time because in the “best friend” category, I have a few. And I’ve already drawn most of them… as cartoons, comics, princesses, jedis, sketches etc.
So this one is of Steph, kind of. I find it hard to draw actual people freehand. Steph is due to have a daughter in a few weeks. She’s also the owner of the very loyal Holly.
