This illustration entitled “Little Red Dress” is the latest in a series I am doing. The drawing is done in color pencil and pen on an 8×11 old book page. I enjoy doing these fashion illustrations because…well I don’t know why I enjoy them. I just do. In life we don’ t always need to explain every move we make. There are times we are led by God and when we look back we think to ourselves, “Why did I do that? It was so out of my comfort zone.” But you see the only way we can grow in faith and knowledge is by going outside of our comfort zone and I guess that is why I like these drawing because they help me grow as an artist. So step out in faith today. It may be uncomfortable at first but it will help you grow as a Christian.
This is the newest entry in a series of paintings I’m doing with depictions of seated models. This one like the rest is on a 6 1/2 by 8 old book page. It is illustrated using soft pastels and color pencils. I hope you like the drawing. I have no message for today other than to say to get better at anything you must put your faith in God and trust Him to guide you.
This is a drawing of a snow covered car. I decided to do it as a last hoorah for winter. This is a pencil drawing highlighted in pen and watercolor pencil. Like all other seasons of life winter passes and then we move on to a better place where we will see our Savior face to face. So as you move through life remember faith is not just a word it needs to be the center of our lives.
Some of my drawings I repurpose and create new drawings. This is one of those drawings. It started out as a picture of rocks. I changed it and made it all about the bears and seeking out the honey. I hope you like the new versions on.
in my latest effort the hiker has his sidekick Little Fun following because as we all know we need little to have a little fun with us at all times. Think about it.
Keeping yourself grounded is a hard thing to do sometimes. We set our goals so high they are not easily attainable. So the next thing we know we fail to reach our goals and in turn in feel like we may never succeed. So my advice in this New Year is to try and keep expectations a lower in order to insure being successful a little at a time. You know the old saying, “success breeds success.” So don’t stop setting goals just keep them obtainable.
It is the end of another year, it is also the end of my 365 Drawing Challenge. It is also the dawn of a New Year and the continuation of my 1001 Drawing Challenge. I decide to turn my 365 Drawings Challenge into a 1001 Drawings Challenge because I have developed a love for drawing illustrations and want to continue to develop my talents as an artist and an illustrator. I call on everyone reading this to challenge yourself to try something new in the coming New Year and stick to it for a whole year. So until my next post stay safe and have a Happy New Year.
