I've just discovered this amazing forum and I'm thrilled to be here!
I took up drawing last september and practise as often as I can (mostly every day.) I started with pastels but was soon daunted by the use of colours, so I switched to graphite to try and concentrate on what I really want to work on, that is, the modelling of the face, real or imaginery. I've got a lot to learn and I'm trying hard!
Before that I made jewellery for about 20 years, using many different materials in the beginning until I discovered polymer clay and used it as my favorite medium for 11 years. So if I can be of any help here....
