We’ve been doing a major purging of the house. It’s amazing the things you find in the process.
Here’s a drawing I did almost 15 years ago. I had bought a book about drawing from photos.
Before that, I always thought I was just one of those people who couldn’t draw. This book made me realize that not only can I draw, but that anybody can draw.
It’s just a matter of taking the steps one at a time.
And it’s important to take your time.
I never framed this drawing because I never really “finished” it. I had drawn the grid lines on it too dark and I didn’t know how to remedy that situation.
But when I found it last week, I thought it added a little character to it to have the grid lines still vaguely showing…a little DaVinci-esk, don’t you think?
I found another one, but it didn’t turn out as good…it was quite a bit harder, being that the eyes and the mouth were open.
I have one that I framed and I’ve had it displayed in my house off and on throughout the years.
But this one that I found is probably my favorite…at least for now. (Despite the smudge marks on the side of it).
I’ve recently given away the book and drawing supplies that were still lingering. I’m a dabbler. And I’ve come to terms with the fact that I probably am not going to pursue drawing any further than I did all those years ago. Maybe.
It’s just too time consuming.
And I have so many other things to dabble in.
