Who Says You Can't Draw? Day 1

January has been a busy month!  As usual, I bit off more than I could chew and have been trying to play catch up all month long.  One of my big bites was to jump in, pencils first and prove once and for all to myself and the world that I can't draw.  Ya, ya, I know.  You're supposed to choose positive, uplifting goals for the year.  But ya know, sometimes it's better to find out when to quit banging yourself on the head over something.  This one is it.  WHEW... it took some (inner) convincing to get me to sign up for a drawing course but there I was ready to tackle the challenge...

Well I have decided that I am going to let you be the judge (brave huh????) over the next eight days as I do some "drive by blogging" (you know the kind that only takes a few minutes) and post my progress in learning to draw a face.  Please comment if you like (but be nice eh!)  Today's offering is my first attempt at it a week or so ago.




Cheers,
Sharon

  1. Years ago I looked at a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. In it was an exercise where you copied a line picture upside while it was upside down. I seemed to get a 'click' in my brain that helped me look at things to draw in a new way. Try it and see what you think. I tried it with adolescents when I was still teaching and it was amazing what they did. They used comics from the newspaper to copy.
