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.
