I’ll be the first to admit that I completely lack artistic talent and skills, but for someone who couldn’t draw to save her life a few months ago, I am feeling so giddy at this process.
I’m just having so much fun trying new things and playing with the cutest supplies ever.
I’ve taken a few little workshops as well as watching YouTube videos to watch the process of a few artists I admire. It’s fascinating for me to see something go from pencil to paper. So surreal to have an image in my head come out of nowhere and appear on the paper in front of me.
To practice, I am trying to copy images I see – to see how close I can get to an existing shape/face/object.
Some of these are just pictures that popped into my head and some are my versions of images found online or from the workshops I’ve been taking. I won’t embarrass myself by showing you how they were supposed to look, but it’s where I’m at for now.
I’m so thankful for my kids and sweet husband who cheer me along with every new work of “art” I create.
