Challenging myself

One of my goals for this year with my art was to improve my portraits and people drawings in general. I have worked hard at this, with the odd lapse here and there. I am human after all...

I realised that although I have been doing a lot of work I was still avoiding certain images of people as I felt they were too hard. Well I bit the bullet, so to speak and have made an attempt at some of those images. As you can see they generally include older people with wrinkles and different face shapes, and facial hair.

Here are my efforts. I hope they encourage you to give something a go that you have been avoiding. You don't have to strive for perfection just give it a go. Like everything else the more you do it the better you will become.


  1. Nice portraits! Like anything, the more you do it the better you get at it. You did one of the things I dislike most about portraits...teeth. lol Good job!

  2. Oh yes, dreaded teeth. But as I said it was an exercise in getting out of my comfort zone :) Thanks for the feedback
