Portraits + a win!

Well, this drawing-a-day thing has got a bit on top of me since going back to work after the Xmas break......but I'm doing what I can and will continue to do so!

I think we're up to #18.....
My middly girl Bethany at age 6 (4 years ago), ready for ballet:

#19 My nephew Jake at 2 months....loved trying a baby....rounded features and no eyebrows!

#20 Jake at 4 months:

#21 some pots on a table.....did this one at Art Class using square graphite's huge (A1 size)....

#22 Kate (my eldest) a couple of years ago:

#23 Johnny Depp

#24 Dean drawn from life at Art Class last Saturday:

.....using my new pastel pencils.....

THRILLED to tell you I entered 5 of my favourite drawings in our local show on the weekend and had a bit of a shock to say the least.

"Coffee and Toast" received a Highly Commended in the Still Life category:

"Sunnydale Heifer" came 2nd in the Work on Paper category:

"My Bessie" (drawn last year and featured in my blog header) came 1st in Novice:

"Mia" was 1st in Portraiture:

"Ellie" was 1st in Any Living Creature"

Then......lovely surprise......I was also awarded the Reserve Champion and Grand Champion of the Show!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Keep drawing!
