I had a couple of occasions when I posted my feelings and thought I was ready to move on, well I wasn't, I soon returned to feeling unsettled.
But at last I have settled in to my new normal and having been planning to really concentrate on my art in 2011. I have made a start in the following areas:-
- Over the last few weeks I have completed a number of small works on a regular basis, making myself finish what I've started. Initially I found it easier to finish something that I could complete in a couple of days.All of these have been sold thanks to my loyal following of international collectors.
- I have collected a body of reference material ready to include in a series instruction booklets I plan to release throughout 2011 on drawing animals in coloured pencil.
- I have decided which shows I am going to apply to attend as an exhibitor in 2011, with scope for additions.
- I have made a rough plan of how I will break my time up on a daily basis.
I will discuss each of these aims in further posts together with an overall plan for 2011.
On a different note Katherine Tyrrell has published her selected artwork for her Making A Mark Awards 2010. I'm delighted to announce that she has picked 'The Right Side' as one of the entries in the 'Best Portrayal in Nature' category.
