Project

Caitlan

I sketched this from a photo on Sktchy app, part of my #sktchy30 challenge. I tried to apply everything Marc has taught in this lesson: open lines, bread crumbs, charging in and edge pulling, etc. Also tried to apply the insight "color doesn't matter, only the value it represents does". (--> I need to be more careful with this, to prevent future blue-ish nose haha) This is a great start for me to draw/paint loosely. Something that I've always wanted (and tried--with very little success) for the past few months. Still need to practice a lot though. Input/tips are welcomed! Thanks!
