2 down, 998 to go…

So,  I have started my great experiment to see if I can push myself to create 1000 portraits.  I am planning on drawing a portrait a day… whether I can do this, or not, I am not sure.  My thought was that if I blogged about the experience, it would be another motivator for me to pick up my paper and pencil and draw when I would otherwise do something else a lot less productive.  I am hoping that this experience will make me a better artist and also expose my art to a larger audience.

These are the first 2 drawings of my project. They are both drawn with a combination of colored pencil and pastel. The first one is my daughter, Cordelia and the second is of my nephew, Jonah.
