Oh What A Look

Oh What A Look

This is one out of a set of 4 pictures. All with different expressions and that is why I wanted to draw them. Something different and new as I have never drawn expressions like this before.

This is done in 4B, 6B and 9B graphite pencils.

***Note from Kerry:
Bella, this is really great - I love it! I'm especially pleased to see you still work with pencil.

The Look Of Surprise

The Look Of Surprise

This is the final drawing in my series of 4.

To me he looks as if he could be saying "Oh my!" and being very surprised by something. I did this with 6 and 9B graphite.

This woman has such attitude and I just love it. As someone said, she has the look of "Me? Wash dishes? No ways!!!"

I did this in soft pastels and enjoyed every minute of it.

**Note from Kerry:
Oh Bella, this is so beautiful. Good on you for producing such fine work.

Woman In Graphite and Turps

Woman In Graphite and Turpentine

Woman In Graphite and Turpentine

I did this picture in graphite and turpentine. It's a nice medium to experiment with.

Then I did the highlights with soft pastel. I must be honest and say that I surprised myself. I thought I would not get this right, even with help.

Anyway, I really enjoyed doing this picture. Actually, I enjoy all my pictures and am always surprised by the end results. Hope you like it.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Bella, it's the surprise element in art that I love the most, it's such a great feeling. I can see why you are proud of you. Good job.

Pencil Drawing Of A Girl

Pencil Drawing Of A Girl

This is a copy of a drawing that a friend found on the internet.

I was just messing around drawing this and I think that it turned out rather nice.

I enjoyed drawing the eyes the most. I used a 6B for this little picture.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Bella! It's lovely to hear from you. It's obvious that your drawing skills are improving in leaps and bounds. Good on you, you've done well.

Portrait Of A Child

Portrait Of A Child

Portrait Of A Child

I found a book on how to draw and I liked this picture, so I drew it. It was quite difficult to draw. I used a 4B pencil.

I have since been told that it's difficult to draw children!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Bella, yes, portrait drawing is probably the hardest thing to conquer when learning to draw. However, every bit of practice counts and I think you have done a fine job.

Portrait Of A Girl

Portrait Of A Girl

Portrait Of A Girl

This is a weird story. I found a picture on the internet and decided to draw it. I was sitting on the floor and the light was bad, but I was too lazy to get up because I was enjoying drawing so much.

As I was drawing this, I decided that I would make it different and just did my own thing. I could hardly see what I was drawing. When I finished the drawing I felt that it was o.k. I closed the book and got into bed.

The next day at work, I saw a photo of my niece on the computer and was amazed to see that the picture I had drawn looks just like her.

I used a 6B pencil for this drawing.

**Note from Kerry:
Hi Bella, I hope I can draw this well, in the dark!! You are improving so much and I'm pleased to see that you are continuously practicing.

Portrait Of A Woman

I fell in love with this picture the minute that I saw it and I just had to draw it.

This was my first pastel paint picture and I enjoyed it very much. I must be honest and say that I had a bit of help from my art teacher. It is copied from a photocopy print that she has.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Bella, this is stunning! I can see why you loved it. It's very good for your first effort in pastel. Well done.
