Daily sketching practice

One thing I try to do every morning is spend some time drawing or sketching or painting something. Doesn't really matter what. Sometimes it might be 40 minutes sometimes only 5 minutes,  but the main thing is, now matter what happens the rest of the day, I have at least done a little bit of drawing.

Lately, I've been wrestling with drawing faces, and that struggle is evident on this large 18x24 sketch pad that has been laying open on my table for a while now.

Some faces turn out better than others, but each sketch is a small victory in my journey to get better at this. It's not about getting it perfect every time; it's about putting in the effort and learning from each attempt.

I am just trying to find continuous improvement. Even when I hit a roadblock, I keep going, trying to figure out what works and what doesn't. It's a process of trial and error, but it's how I grow as an artist. Or at least that is the theory.
