“Eye Practice” Cedar Park, 2017


Tonight’s photo is of some sketches of eyes. I’ve been trying to draw faces better, and it’s a challenge. There are many tutorials on Youtube and they are all just a bit different in their systems for drawing faces, and I am trying a few from the artists whose drawing style I like. It’s fun, and so encouraging when I see my drawings improve. But, it really takes a lot of practice (for me at least) to get better.

Drawing a single eye isn’t too difficult but drawing a matching eye is tough. Really tough!

In other news, I bought a few different ink samples from Goulet Pens last week, and I’ve decided to use a new color for each month’s worth of journal entries. Since the new month began today, I replaced the Iroshizuku Ama-iro blue with Iroshizuku Tsutsuji azalea in my LAMY Safari. Tsutsuji is a really bright ink. I love it and am looking forward to using it this month! FYI, my daily journal entries are simple lists with stuff like the meals I ate, and other daily happenings.

To see all the sketches I’ve been working on, you can check out the Flickr album “My Sketching Journey”, or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.

I hope you had a nice Tuesday!
