You call that art?
I started taking art classes (once a fortnight) in August 2015. Going back to the basics, I started out with graphite pencil, and I do believe that you can see some real progress. The images are in order of newest to oldest, so if you scroll through using the right arrow you’ll see my work gradually deteriorate, but if you scroll through using the left arrow, you’ll get to see it improve.

Moving on to something called Brusho, which is a crystalline powder that is activated with water. In other words, a form of watercolour. I’ve been warned that watercolour can be challenging, so be prepared for awful stuff to begin with, and watch me progress over the course of the year.

I’ve progressed to pastels. The idea of working with colour is really exciting, yet I’m a little hesitant, as I know that pastels can smudge quite easily. I hope to have a set of soft pastels of my own by Christmas – currently I’m using my teacher’s pastels – so that I can practise outside of class. They cost a lot more than graphite pencils though … there goes my chocolate budget for the next six months.
