All of 2012, I got a lot of time to read, reflect, draw, write (a bit) and one thing I finally accepted – that I am incorrigibly LAZY!
If this sounds contradictory, it is because I feel I have not done as much as I could have.
Therefore, in a mood of learning, interaction, I joined a sketching class with the intention of getting my figurative drawing in shape! :-)
The best thing about going to this class is I am with little kiddos who are just as tall as the table, yes, Lilliput sized, but hugely creative and skilled! There are grey haired grown-ups too and it is a lively, mixed atmosphere full of activity!
I realize that I need to hone my skills to be a more effective painter. I need to combine technique with imagination, because one without the other leads to lifeless art that does not speak to me.
Here are some sketches I did.
I am learning about light and proportion with each drawing I make.
