I have lots of fabric……but no inspiration……even though the fabric is talking to me in the other room, the kitchen and the canning kettle have a bigger draw……………………..But fabric doesn’t go bad and will be there when I am ready.
The problem with this drawing was that I had more than one light source. This made my task much harder, so I decided to make it an artist interpretation of eggs. Hopefully I can get the lighting set up better to make the rendering a bit easier! But I am trying to draw ever day and eventually I will get better!
I was taught to draw in High school( a long time ago) and felt fairly comfortable with simple drawings .But after watching the video by Mark Menendez “Basic Drawing Techniques”I realized my exposure had just barely scratched the surface of drawing technique. I know as a teacher we decide what parts of a technique are essential to be taught to learn that skill/activity. I have found that I learn different things from each master teacher I have taken classes from, whether it is a gymnastics skills or a quilting skill. I found this video particularly useful and has inspired me to try to draw daily
and as Mark Menendez says “Make Time For Art”. I am hoping that by drawing daily it will help me to get back into other areas of art. Giving me a more complete idea of what I plan to create and the confidence to keep at the project.
