Well, that's the end of the summer break then! We had a busy 6 weeks but with lots of fun too-visiting family and friends, days out, days in, late nights, late mornings...it was lovely. I am so grateful for the job my hubby has as a Teacher because it means that we can all spend quality time with each other during the holidays especially while the kids are young. Having him around makes for some super memories together!
On top of that this summer I was able to stay more creative than in previous summer holidays and have been working on the holiday face challenge that I set myself at the beginning of the break. I made sure I didn't pressure myself into unrealistic goals, but managed to do 14 faces over the 6 weeks-just over 2 a week! I am chuffed! I have always said that I need to be totally on my own to get creative, and although I did nip out into my art room on occasions to draw, I am super pleased that I managed to get so many ideas into my sketchbook with the family around. And I have decided to keep the challenge going for myself as it its good practice to keep on practicing! :-) Here's a peak of some of my faces. (My friend Emily also joined in with the challenge and you can see two of her sketches at the top.) I have really enjoyed setting myself this goal, and was extra pleased that Emily joined in too! I wonder how long it will take me to fill up the sketchbook! Now that's a challenge!
I have been thinking of how to progress with my artwork and have been coming up with some possible ideas too...more on that soon! Hope you are all well and that you have had a great Summer.
Thanks for reading!
