After a long creative dry spell, I began something new this New Year to help myself get comfortable with drawing again. For me to stick to it as a regular thing, I’m making it as straightforward as possible, so rather than faff about looking for interesting references to draw, I’m simply using what I have in front of me every day: my own face in the mirror. I’ll also be working in any medium or style; anything goes.
If this is something you’d like to do too, feel free. The hashtag for sharing on social media, if you feel so inclined, is #52facies or #52facies2019 and if you’d like to share in a more private setting, there’s a dedicated #52facies group open in this friendly, no-pressure online art community, which is completely free to join.
