Hey everyone! Hope you are getting into the Wednesday groove!!
Yesterday I spend many hours practicing the same thing over and over again. Sometimes I think I might be a little looney, but I mean I just want to get it right! Too many details can bog up a drawing, and I am a believer that a really great artist can pull off alot using just a few lines and shadows. Simple is good. I started off not so simple and gradually tried to simplify my drawing, trying out different techniques along the way…switching from watercolour and pencil, to ink and watercolour…and back again. It was a bit of a painstaking day, but practice makes perfect.
I did get frustrated by the end….I think the frustration comes from this funny voice in the back of my mind that tells me that because I draw alot I am supposed to be some kind of pro at everything I set out to make! Patience with yourself is something I think everyone has gotta learn! (Me especially!!) Well I’ll show you how it went. I must admit some of these I am a little ashamed of posting up for the world to see,but what the heck! Nobody is perfect!! I’ve posted them up in chronological order:
Anyhow, there’s always tomorrow right? Sometimes it takes me a while to settle in with what I’ve made and then I take another look a few days later and realize what I’ve done is not so bad! Well that’s it for now! Have a great Wednesday!
