Anyway the playful ME decided this is no time for serious finished drawing / painting work. I'm going to cheat a little by just showing you one of my drawing exercises. (Apologize of the glare in the pix.)
The exercise is prescribed by Matthew Archambault from Drawing Tutorials Online (DTO)- a wonderful place to learn about figure drawing. As it is Matt's teaching method, I won't be telling you exactly what we are doing. The only thing I'm going to tell you is that it is all about hand eye co-ordination. (Oh, and just so you know, this is my 2nd try with DTO. Not that there was anything wrong with them the 1st time. It was ME who took up more than I could handle the first round.)
After about 2 years of self-taught myself to draw and paint, I have gained lots of insight of my creative preferences, directions and goals. I think it is time to give myself a challenge, I mean A Challenge. So apart from joining DTO, I also joined its sister site, Painting Tutorial Online (PTO), to learn about oil painting.
During this learning period, I hope that I could still keep up with my weekly (or more like biweekly) sketchbook pages here. Not sure if I'll be ready to post any oil painting study / exercise here yet. We'll see how things go.
So, my dear fellow creatives, wish me luck!

Cheers and have a fantastic weekend! xxoo
