I love your little book of portraits. I saw it originally on one of your zoom calls and it's fun to take a closer look. I do have some dread around drawing faces. I'm usually most successful at getting a likeness when I'm not really trying to at all! But it can be hard to "not try" on purpose.

Hi Samantha, I found you over on Charlene Storey’s stack in the introduce yourself comments. I love what you're doing here and I LOVE the mini notebook idea. Cheers!

I just love the various moods you have in your portraits here! I did a 50 days of pencil sketching project a few years ago and about halfway in I started trying portraits... they were SO tricky at first but -- my goodness -- does repetition help develop your hand/eye!! By the end I was having so much fun (but I also was taking too much time with them so I stopped when my business got too busy, and am just now coming back to any kind of sketching / art practice). Thank you, as always, for the inspiration!

Your figures are excellent you should give yourself a lit of credit but I love your humbleness. It is really hard to draw figures, I'm a beginner drawer and its difficult especially hands. Thanks for sharing. 💙
