I know January was supposed to be my month for embroidery, but I actually didn't do much!
I started a few but they do take a while and I haven't finished them yet.
I think embroidery is a nice "in-between" craft.
It's easy to pick up and put down, so it's easy to do when you have some free time to get lost in the meditative process of it.
It's definitely a craft I want to explore more and spend more time on!
But February is the month to explore portraits and I am excited to get into it!
A lot of my art is usually drawings of whimsical, more abstract ladies.
Working more on realistic portraits, or at least different styles will be a fun art adventure.
Speaking of my usual ladies, here's two recent pages in my watercolor sketchbook:
Also, I bought an easel!
I feel very professional. :D
Here's what I have up there now:
And here is my first portrait of February:
It was a quick one, and came out quite off proportion.
I didn't like it at first because it was so off, but I like it better with color.
And it still captures the goofy energy of me and the panda.
So, I'm pretty pleased.
I hope you all had a great first month of 2015 and are keeping up the creative energy for month two!
