I may have mentioned that I can’t draw to save my life. Well, I think things are about to change!
This afternoon, we had a new instructor, Marta. I already think she is amazing! She is taking it easy on me (and anyone else who needs it) because of my limited drawing skills. She has already given me a lot of encouragement. I think if I keep doing what I’ve been doing, putting my all into it, there is nothing but room for improvement! She says that is what she is looking for. As long as we try our best, we will pass. Yay!
The first thing we did was a technique called blind drawing. She gave us a feather. Told us to look at it, to study it and then draw what we saw without looking at the paper. Surprisingly enough, mine resembled a feather! She also had us do double blind drawing. That’s where you close both of your eyes. Yeah, not so great. But at least I wasn’t alone!
Here’s some of the drawings I did:
Well, I have to say that I’m excited, but a little nervous about tomorrow. This is totally uncharted territory. I’m on the roller coaster… Now’s the time to hang on!
