Twiggy

Twiggy
10x8 Pencil
Copyright Laura Hardie 2009

Twiggy is now finished and, if I can say so myself, I’m really pleased with how she turned out. This is one of those times when the drawing looks much better than the scan unfortunately, but then I’ve always found graphite drawings difficult to scan or photograph (as many of you will know:))

Although somewhat unorganised, I’ve been spending more and more time at my drawing board recently which I’m glad to report, and I’m feeling a lot more motivated with loads of ideas running through my head - both on the creative and marketing side. Lets hope they materialise and I don’t spend all my time procrastinating. The weekend has also seen me doing some much needed updates to my website – nothing major, still the same layout etc, but I want to get my ‘shop’ area up and running so have been working on this. Providing I don’t have any problems with adding PayPal buttons, which I very much doubt knowing my past history with technology, I’d like to say I should have this finished by the end of next week. Wish me luck:)

Lovely work.

If you have any problems with the Paypal buttons just email me, I'm reasonably proficient at adding them.

Laura said...

Thank you for the great comments - so pleased you like how she turned out though it helped having a totally gorgeous subject to start with:)

Gayle, I've not yet plucked up the courage to add my PayPal buttons yet for fear of not being able to do it and depressing myself:) That's great to know you'll help if I get stuck - thank you:)
