Morning Portraits

As I am writing this (which is a few days before this post gets published) I still have only two more portraits to go in my current morning art project. Now that I'm back to doing my morning art every day it goes really fast.

I am enjoying these portraits very  much, especially doing them in multicoloured pencil. I never really just sketched with coloured pencil before so it's an interesting experience.

Here are portraits number 21 to 26, as always they are mailorder catalogue girls.

So while I'm closing in on the end of this project, I am trying to think of what to do next and I haven't decided yet. I have so many options I would like to try and also some that kind of intimidate me.
For instance I would like to do a series of landscapes in gouache, but I absolutely suck at landscapes, so it's scary to do. I'm also thinking of doing botanicals in coloured pencil, which would also be very challenging.

But then again, it's the practice that I'm doing this for in the first place. Trying new or difficult things should be part of that. I'll just think on it a bit more and let you know. If you have any suggestions I would love to read them in the comments.

For now I wish you all a wonderful and artsy day.


  1. All of these girls are beautifully done! I was just thinking, wouldn't that be so cool if one of these models or her family come across your blog and saw their picture? I'm sure they'd be totally flattered, I know I would be! : )

    Have a nice day, friend! (Hugs)

    1. Ha, I'm not sure they would always recognize themselves, the likeness isn't always that great, but it would be fun. ;-)

  2. Mooie dames als afsluiting van je project. Ben benieuwd wat het volgende gaat worden. Fijne zondag, groetjes Laura

    1. Dit waren nog niet de laatste hoor. Er komt nog één post. Maar...dank je wel. :-)


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
