I’ve been following an online course by Gritty Jane (Portraits and Papers).
I’m absolutely loving it, and I’m kind of pleased with my results so far. I know they look really amateurish (they remind me of the art corridor at school) but the process is really satisfying and I’m just sure I can make some big improvements with a bit of work.
I love the charcoal technique. I’m going to go back and practise that before moving back on to the painting, as I think if I can master the charcoal I’ll be much stronger with the paint.
