Thursday continued painting with acrylic paint on my portrait painting. After my colours had dried I wasn’t happy with the outcome, so I decided to work back into the painting more then went to a sculpture class to gain more skills. I enjoyed this and thought it can influence my drawing skills a lot. (12)
