Art, Drawing and Life
May 15, 2013 § Leave a comment
I find that drawing is a great outlet and a terrifying venture. On one hand it helps calm, relax and unwind. On the other hand, starting a new project or learning opportunity can be daunting. Trying to become what you want can spiral self-doubt into a mental catastrophe. Both can happen at once; you doodle and draw but don’t let yourself improve for self-doubt. This is part of the process of creation. So I started taking a beginners life drawing. The intermediate one was full up. So the class I’m taking is even more basic than I’ve ever been in. The techniques are hilarious to me! Last night during the first class we did blind contours and learned what news print was. I think this class is going to be so low pressure that I relax and let myself do what I want instead of holding back. Well see.
