An Otane patchworker sat for us at portraiture on Friday. We began with longer poses this time so I didn't get so many drawings completed but I was happy with what I did as I seemed to have improved on hands. Feet are another matter however! Strangely enough I felt an urge to return to charcoal this session when it's not a medium I usually work with.
I received my TLC folder back today with my tutor's DVD feedback. It was much better than I had hoped as she liked my self portraits and life drawings as well as my patchwork paintings. Carrie even mentioned how pleased she is that I'm moving out of my comfort zone. After the 21 minute film of her comments I felt a bit better about my work whereas yesterday I was having a down about it. Next time I am packing a sad I'll play that DVD again to keep me working.
