Illustration Friday (on Tuesday) - Gesture

Hi guys

I have to admit I’m not really fussed with her, nor while I was painting her - as you can probably tell if you watch the video of the piece being created below.  It’s not very often that it happens to me but I just wasn’t in ‘the zone’ and hence didn’t like the results.  However one of the most vital things I have learnt is that it is as important to appreciate what you don’t like as much as what you do, as it is still part of your creative journey (same can be said of life hey?) and still producing something when not in the zone is a lot better than being in the zone and producing nothing I say.  Here is speed video of the process:

Finally I just want to thank everyone for such nice comments, you have made my integration into the blogosphere fun and encouraging as opposed the big scary monster I thought it would be so big hugs to you, I really appreciate it.
