The Round House had always enchanted my imagination from a young age. It is actually the oldest building still standing in Western Australia, from 1830!
Something about being able to physically touch something that is so old, from generations ago is truly amazing. All the people that have come and gone, their stories tied to this building which remains despite the toll of time...
😂 Laugh along with me...
So in 2013 I came across a few amazing artists that did realistic portraits and thought I would try draw as well so naturally my first subject I attempted was Lana Del Rey. That drawing on the top left ended up on paper forcing me to realise that I was terrible. I assumed drawing wasn't for me and that there was no hope so I gave up until March 2014 when I got inspired to give it a go again.
This time I was more determined drawing daily, wanting to teach myself to draw like the artists I admired. I even created this Instagram account for accountability purposes but had no art school, no lessons, just me and reference photos trying to create a likeness etc... I spent hours and hours everyday trying to improve and this just goes to show that it's possible even with lengthy art blocks/hiatuses. You all know that recently I drew absolutely nothing for 10+ months and I'm glad that was not permanent otherwise this latest Lana and other recent pieces wouldn't have been created!
I may not be the best artist in the world but I'm better than I have been before and that's always a plus! 💪🏻 Whatever you want in life, stick to your plan to achieve it. 🏆
To all of my followers I really do appreciate you all supporting me! All the likes, comments and reposts are too sweet but most of all; encouraging. Those of you that have previously helped my work get recognition from the subjects; all those successes wouldn't have happened without you all so just know that I see you 👀
P.S if you want further chuckles, scroll all the way back down to my first posts as those were all my first year attempts! 😂
Love you all! 🖤✍🏻🌚💫
