I love cats and I have two,
Olive and Jelly Bean!
I play piano. I stink at sight reading music, but I can play by ear.
I am a middle child. (I have two sisters.)
I am married to my sweet love. ;)
My mom inspired me to start drawing.
(She's an artist too!)
I am a Christian and I love the Lord! Jesus is my savior and I am blessed by His love.
PRACTICE! It is the best way to improve. Keep a sketchbook and draw in it as much as you can. Draw from life, photo references, and your imagination.
Buy the best materials you can comfortably afford. Of course, practice is key, but having the good stuff can't hurt.
Check out my recommended materials lists!
Put a piece of paper under your drawing hand while you work. This really helps prevent smudging.
If possible, have your reference be the same size as your drawing or painting. This will help a lot when you need to take measurements to get proportions correct.
Don't be afraid to try different mediums. You may like it!
Write out a sort of "Inspiration List" that contains words, themes, and ideas that inspire you. This will come in handy if you ever have an art block.
