What Went Effectively

Right here’s what went nicely throughout the 12 months:

  • I produced much less work however of a better high quality. I appear to be taking longer to complete my work. I feel one motive for that is that I’ve tightened up my method and given myself much less room for error. One more reason is that have permits me to see so many extra choices to enhance the portray that I used to be naive to earlier than.
  • We did household journeys to Kingfisher Bay and Noosa. These had been my favourite vacation places after I was a baby. It’s good to see Elora expertise the identical childhood joys. Hopefully, she’s going to get pleasure from fishing as nicely!
  • I began portrait portray. It’s difficult, significantly within the sense portraits are much less forgiving than landscapes. Individuals can inform for those who don’t get the nostril excellent otherwise you make the arms a contact too huge. However this makes it thrilling.
  • We hung a lot of my work round the home. We additionally developed a very good relationship with a neighborhood framer and had a number of work framed.

What Didn’t Go Effectively

  • Hardly did any drawing. Time has been restricted and I’ve most well-liked brush and colour over pencil. However, if I need to hold bettering in portray, I must hold drawing.
  • It was the 12 months of sickness. I’ve by no means been so often sick. I’ll chalk that as much as Elora’s first 12 months at daycare.
  • Didn’t learn many new artwork books.
  • Kobe nonetheless struggles with the steps.
