I hate sketching with a pencil. I blame bad art teachers, being a perfectionist (I want it right the first time I do it), and being sensitive to what others think. But give me a paintbrush and oil paint and I jump right in there and sketch away. The thing with oil paint is you can move it around, get it right. Or if not, it's easy to cover up later.
So, back to drawing with a pencil. I'm getting pretty tired of that hang-up. I feel like it's holding me back. What's an artist to do then? I'm so glad you asked! :) I have decided to challenge myself to do 30 sketches in 30 days, starting today! If you're interested in following along, you can find me at: ceciliabramhallart on Instagram and Cecilia Bramhall Art on facebook. Here's the one I did for today. Let me know what you think!
Hi! I'm Cecilia and I'm an oil painter from Texas.
