#IFeelBetterWhen I allow myself time to develop a skill. This was the first piece I created when I started A-level art. The theme I chose was 'Birds of a feather, flock together'. I didn't have much confidence when I was doing GCSE Art. I always felt like I was lacking and had no individual style. But with this drawing, I tried working in mixed media for the first time and the results were better than usual so I gained more confidence from it and steadily began to improve my work. It's not a perfect drawing but it's a starting point and it reminds me that small personal achievements are the first step towards change. Media: Watercolours Salt India ink Colouring pencils
