So now, after about 2 weeks of practice - and with the aid of the most excellent book:

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

I have come up with a couple of passable drawings.


Ok, I know that my attempts at drawing are far from perfect...

Life doesn't have to be perfect and neither do my attempts at art!!

The main thing is that I am happy with what I produced. Not bad, eh?!!


When I made the second drawing, I seemed to have gone into some kind of a "state of "flow." I completely lost all sense of time and the drawing just seemed to flow from my pencil. (Well, Faye is extremely pretty and, I suppose, it helps when you are drawing your favorite subject!!)

I have tried to repeat this experience but, without that level of success. I guess that it depends on how you are feeling at the time and various other circumstances? Even my other drawings of Faye haven't come out quite so well. Anyway, this drawing has given me the encouragement that I need to keep trying... And I hope that one day, I will be able to produce great drawings at will!


Time for another beer!!! :drinks::D
