I would love to be able to draw and paint. It has always fascinated me that someone can simply pull an image from their imagination and make it come alive on a piece of paper or canvas. And in their own STYLE. I’m a copier. I have to actually have it in front of me or have a picture to attempt it. Plus, I haven’t picked up a pencil to draw anything for 14 or so years. I like to doodle, but to draw… now that would be awesome. I’m pretty much a high school level drawer. But that is OK, I plan to improve and to hopefully find my own STYLE.
So, I am taking art classes. Heehee. Basic 101 stuff, but I’m excited to give it a whirl. A friend (an amazing artist/blogger) introduced me to an artist forum called Wet Canvas and in there they have free art lessons. How cool! And so it begins…
As a pre-assignment, we were required to draw anything and so I picked a picture of two pears. Simple enough.
I plan to share a few of my projects along the way. I’ll warn you though in case you are not interested. 🙂
