(not quite) 30 Days of Sketches

Drawing, Sketch

Backside at the Coffee Shop

Well, it’s pretty clear I’m not going to get all 30 days done in my drawing self-challenge, but I’m cool with that.  I accomplished what I wanted, which was to confront and beat back my fear of drawing.  I’ve rekindled an old love affair with pencils, gum erasers and big, blank, pieces of paper.  I got comfortable with a technique that’s faster and edgier than my careful and meticulous high school-age sketches.  The end result is much more than I ever expected.  So, Success!

    Dear Sandy, congratulations on that rendering of a person sitting looking away from you. Your drawing conveyed the muscles in his back as well as the swirl of his hair. That’s good drawing! Peace.

    I think you have done a brilliant job, my friend! Congrats on the “not quite”–cause we’re all human after all.
