30 in 30 in 2015 - First Sketch

New year, new resolutions - new challenge!

Like in January 2014, I've decided in the very last moment to take part in Leslie Byrd Saeta's "30 in 30 Challenge". It's the third time for me, and it's always such a great learning experience and just the 'push' I need to get back into painting.

I did hesitate to sign up as I know will be very busy in January, but then I decided that I could use the challenge to make the best of the situation. So, my theme for this time will be to improve on my sketching. Any subject, any media.

To start of here's a sketch I did on my iPad with the app "Paper by FiftyThree". I started with using the pencil tool, but then also blended and added color with the brush. Not sure I like the soft finish now.

"Sketch Nr 1 - T.E. L."
Digital Sketch

I got inspired by watching the great movie "Lawrence of Arabia" (not for the first time, of course....). It is one of those films that you can watch again and again - even 52 years after it was first released! - and every single shot in the movie is worth painting. That would be another project on my list.

All my sketches are also posted on my Facebook Artist Page Regula Scheifele Fine Art - I'd love to have you follow me on Facebook or sign up to follow my blog!
