I’ve been putting the finishing touches on the Joana Miranda Studio 2016 calendar (look for a posting and link-to-buy on my blog just before Thanksgiving) and although I have the calendar images uploaded and ready to send to the printer, there’s one illustration that I’m still not 100% happy about.  Because I have the luxury of a few free days this week before we depart for Australia, I’m planning to redo that one illustration.

My recent sketches, therefore, have been studies for the illustration.  As you can see, it’s a 3/4 face angle which just happens to be one of the hardest face angles to draw simply and well.

Two three quarter head sketches

So I might just resort to doing a profile view instead!

      Thanks, Pam! They’re still a work in progress – but that’s the nature of ALL art, right? 🙂

      I’m off to Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia today. There’s nothing I love more than being by the side of the ocean and hearing the sound of the waves and smelling the salt water. I plan to bring my camera along, so hopefully I’ll get some good pictures.

      A big hug, Joana
