Today’s face: Francesca, inspired by Sktchy. Drawn in a Hahnemuhle Nostalgie sketchbook with Posca pens.

This is my 365th Sktchy portrait. One of the main motivations for starting to draw daily Sktchy portraits was curiosity: I wondered how much my portrait drawing would improve over the course of a year with daily practice. I haven’t drawn a portrait every single day for a year, but now I’ve drawn 365 portraits I do know how much that amount of practice has improved my skill at portraiture. I’m so glad I’ve kept at it and I’ve no intention of stopping now.

And just so you can see what a difference 365 days of practice makes, here’s my first and 365th Sktchy face side by side.
