Artwork by Hanka Spychalska
Hi, my name is Hanka and I live in Poland.
I would be very happy to win the online drawing course, because I didn’t attend to any kind of art school or course as I was discouraged by my arts teacher in primary school. Since then I’ve learned everything on my own by infrequent practice.
I draw mostly portraits in pencil. I would like to try something new, but I’m not sure how to start. I don’t have anyone to turn to for professional advice, and I would like to learn more about all the various tools and techniques.
What I like most about portraits is drawing the fine details of the face, especially wrinkles. Hair is the most difficult thing for me, so I prefer drawing bald heads.
I will keep my story short because I’m currently drawing a portrait of Tom Selleck and must get back to work to finish it – or else my husband won’t give me dinner ;).
