I got stuck in!

I finally bit the bullet and made a start on my first entry. I was feeling a bit anxious about doing it - partly feeling that I was not up to the job having not drawn anything in ages and partly questioning whether I had chosen the right theme.

I had a strong feeling to start the image with a pregnant woman, the rest evolved from there. It took me a little while to let go of the critic inside and just let the drawing flow, which is the approach I was hoping for.

Stream in pencil

So far I have worked in pencil only. I am going to add colour.
