Since I started drawing again some weeks ago, I need to practice some skills I've lost during my abscence. One of it is shading. I failed on these sea shells. *LOL* So I better get some more practice.
When I fail, I always try to get back onto comfortable terrain and do something simple, like graphic or abstract designs. I saw some beautiful zentangle feathers online and gave my own version a go. Feathers are small pieces of art, made by Mother Nature and decorating them makes them even more beautiful.
I tried my hand on leather feathers lately, too. After my first not so nice attempt I watched a lot of videos, got some new tools and had a look at the work of other leatherworkers and here is the second attempt. Still not perfect, but a big step forward.
Later I started another shading practice and it turned out way better on this maple leaf, but still room for improvement.
Linking to Paint Party Friday.
