To be a beginner again, having to concentrate on all the little details that definitely don't come naturally (hard to believe they ever will, either, in this medium), makes me appreciate my own students so much more. And it certainly makes me concentrate and observe (sort of the whole point).
For some reason still unclear, I am intrigued with trying to draw faces.
In the spirit of humility, here are last night's first attempts portraying the basic differences in male and female faces.
As I said...... Total beginner, which should not reflect negatively on my instructor. It's a step up from cartoon stick figures!
