Keep On - Keepin On
I am going to get this -
Isn't this little guy too cute.
This is my youngest grand child Josh.
Sunday I had some time so I decided to try drawing
I've drawn him and painted him, several times
with moderate success.
You know I'm always saying, keep working at it.
Don't give up!
Practice, Practice, Practice!
So I took my own advice and tried again.
It's not a bad drawing, but it's not a great likeness.
But it is the best one I've done so far.
This morning when I got up I took another look
at the drawing and the photo.
As I compared the two,
I saw some things that weren't correct so
so I set about trying to make some corrections.
Here's them next to each other.
With some corrections to the mouth and chin.
This is a better likeness, but still not close enough.
But I'll keep working on it.
Maybe I'll work on his sister Karen first.
The point is, to keep at it.
Just because you don't get it the first time,
try again and again and again.
I learned something new every time I've tried to draw
one of my grandchildren.
You will too!
yes, I'm going to say it again.
It's all in what you see.
You have to keep looking at your drawing or painting,
and what you're rendering it from.
Step away from the project and come back in a day or so.
It's amazing how quickly I saw a few problems
when I slept on it for a night.
When I looked at it this morning,
it was almost like having a neon arrow
pointing to the problem area of the mouth and chin.
Thanks for stopping by today,
and keep on keeping on.
