15 Minute Reflection

Speed sketching!
I know it's not a masterpiece, I know it's not my best work but............
As I put my paintbrush down and stared back at this spread I thought about what I was able to achieve in 15 minutes when I first started keeping a daily journal and how far I had come, how much easier the lines came, how much looser the paint flowed, how I didn't now have to rub out all the pencil lines I made over and over, how scary that first time drawing with ink was knowing I couldn't erase and how that fountain pen is now my favourite tool.
So, no, it's not a masterpiece but it is so much more than just two rather disjointed female faces to me!
