without hesitation, i declare that this is the most beautiful place i’ve visited in the philippines.
these sketches do not do this island justice.
study with charcoal on brown paper (reused grocery bag, heehee). based on old photo, but she still looks young as ever.
frustration is a normal phenomenon for me every time i draw. i have to keep reminding myself that when i get to this point, i must continue, i must get through it, instead of putting away my sketchbook. this week, my approach for getting through the struggle and frustration was to turn loosey-goosey. i made no attempts at “fixing” the drawing, or getting it right; instead, i just let my hand do the work and drew what i saw, without caring about the proportions and accuracy. i have turned my work as an exercise on the basic skills, to practice hand-eye coordination.

stumbled upon this in my pile of sketches done in greece. she is a young girl my roommate and i happened to catch wandering around the garden behind our apartment. we invited her to our veranda and asked if we can draw her, and she happily obliged. oh how i miss the aegean!
did this quickie sketch while waiting for my lunch, sometime late last december. made a to-do list for the new year, too.
blurred some of them, too personal to post! and, incriminating? harhar. but if i do decide to go through with the blurred out goals, i shall re-post the entire list!
