I sketched this out a few days ago and I kept shading and adding to it. Today, I decided to look into where highlights actually go, turns out I was completely off. Spent some time fixing it and just overall trying to improve how I draw faces. Practice, Practice, Practice.
So, I drew this Buddha a week ago and I finally got the weather I wanted to paint outside. Let me tell you…painting is no joke. I have never painted anything serious in my life, let alone a portrait. The paint kept drying too quickly and when I mixed paints together, they thinned out way more than expected. My lines kept coming out uneven and jagged. I had to go over parts multiple times, because I painted outside the lines. But by the end I had learned so much about how to work with acrylic paint. I learned how to utilize water when painting. I started to appreciate the art of layering. Although it was harder than expected, the end result was marvelous. It’s all about the journey 🤘🏾

I tried to create a blog before, but I was not as dedicated as I thought. I have since taken on a new art form. I love drawing and writing poetry. I am going to try to keep this updated as much as possible. I have more faith I will be able to, since I have been keeping up with Instagram pretty consistently.
