The weeks are rolling on and I am still lacking the discipline to develop a regular drawing practice, in preparation for our weekly Drawing Group. I’ve been feeling guilty about it, as a lazy group member can drag the whole group down.
I have been wondering just where I was going to find the inspiration to keep up with the homework. There was no idea in my head to draw today at all. Today is our Journal Group and my focus was totally on that. To my surprise, after a productive afternoon with paint and crayons, I suddenly felt, yes, I can draw a portrait now. So I didn’t loose the moment and tackled this portrait. The technique is a bit scrappy but that is my usual style anyway. The likeness is a bit off but it’s my first one really, using some of the learning from the group. Now I just have to keep going!
