These images are all for the first two days of #artistsinapril  the instagram challenge I devised for Artists in April 2018. Day one - self portrait and day two - beginnings.

 this one was imagined  - a quick scribble in my sketchbook.  I love the freedom of not trying to be accurate and anatomically correct. I want to indulge that side of me more in the future.

 This one is observed but still quick - I stopped myself from going on too long!

 I only posted the image on the left on instagram, but the one on the right illustrates what I was thinking more.. that beginnings are a cycle, the fruition of an idea can and hopefully does lead to the seed for the next.

It's never too late to join in or dip in to create an artwork or even photograph something that suggests one of the prompts. Find me on Instagram at GabriellaBuckingham or look at the hashtag #artistsinapril for a list of the prompts. They're also here on this blog a couple of posts down.
