Day 30 – 30/30 Challenge

My final drawing is a self portrait. I don’t take very good selfies but this drawing came out better than expected.

The challenge has definitely improved my use of graphite and white charcoal on toned paper. I might dedicate a month or 24 days in this case to work on a particular skills. In any case consistent practice = improvement.

I’ll leave the Challenge with this link – Learning to See. It’s one person experience as he works to improve his drawing and painting skills dramatically.

I also want to thank everyone who had followed and like my posts during this Challenge. I had made new “friends” and discovered some fabulous artists!
