I decided recently that I want to improve my drawing skills. I haven't sat down and really drawn anything in years. This little drawing is the last one that I did, and it was 3 years ago. This was during a period when I wasn't creating anything. All my best works (drawings, paintings, everything) had been purposely destroyed a couple years before, and I just didn't have the courage to create again, until about 2 years ago.
The paintings that I've been doing don't require much drawing, but I used to really enjoy just sitting down and doing a detailed drawing. Now I wasn't born with that talent, and so whatever talent I do have is learned. I remember taking a drawing class in high school, and not enjoying it. I found the basic lessons to be very boring and tedious. But the truth is that they work. I came out of that class feeling like I could draw anything, and my skills had significantly improved. But like anything else, you have to keep at it to improve and maintain your abilities.
Therefore, I have decided to start fresh with my drawing skills again. Wet Canvas offers all kinds of "classes" and lessons, so I'm going to be exploring different subjects and starting with the basics again. I will be attempting to draw daily, and I might share some of my creations.
Have a great weekend! :)
