This is an illustration in the making of my two nieces. They're staying with me while the family waits to move into their rented house. In the back is their pup Hanna who whines and frets until the girls get home from school. Hoping for this to be my illustration Friday entry. As in..."Hanna, STAY" (something they always tell her).
I'm trying to get better at drawing interiors and exteriors of buildings/houses. This was a really fun perspective, and very challenging! Sometimes I think to myself, I don't like drawing such-and-such. But the fact often is, I have a hard time drawing certain subjects. And maybe I'd actually enjoy it if I practiced and got better at it? Or maybe I think I CAN'T drawing those subjects and avoid them? So, recently I'm trying to challenge that belief system. Of course I can draw anything I set my mind to right? That's what practicing is for. I'm done limiting myself that way. Time for another growth spurt! It's what keeps things fresh and interesting.
Before I paint this, I'm going to go over all the lines with a ruler to give the building a better look of solidarity. For right now they're very loosely drawn just to get the idea down.
