Daily drawing practice sketch of a girl 2

I know that drawing people’s faces is something that I really need to work on if I am going to get anywhere near realistic drawing.  All I can do is keep on practicing and looking around for tips.  It’s a little bit frustrating, and I think one of the things I have to do is take on one of these portraits as a multi-day challenge.  I usually try to get all of these daily drawings done in one sitting with maybe just a break or two to stretch my legs or let the dogs outside.  Most of these are done in a relatively short time, but I think portraits might require a bit more patience.  The daily drawing challenge continues though.

Some Sketch Journaling Today from Inside My Head

OK.  This has nothing to do with the drawing I’ve posted above, but today I was thinking about the neurologist who was assigned to me when I was in the hospital after my stroke.  He was a jerk.  I decided to look up his name and wasn’t too surprised to find MANY MANY stories similar to mine.  These reviews described a man who was dismissive and rude to his patients and their families on a very regular basis.  Honestly, reading the reviews made my stomach clench and started to get me really riled up.  I shared the reviews I found with my wife.  She wasn’t surprised by what I found because she has heard me talking about this man off and on for months.

Then it hit me that I was giving him way more of my energy than he deserves.  I could be focusing that energy on something positive in my life.  I could be doing something productive.  I could set myself free of this man at any time if I choose to do so.  How many other things do we hold on to like this for no good reason.  I realized that beyond warning other people about this man, I have no reason to ever give him a second thought ever again.  There is something very liberating in that thought.  All I have to do is decide to forgive him for being a jerk and then let him go.  Alright then.  I’ll give that a shot.  Then I’ll draw something.
