|My first still-life|
|I like using the white pencil|
From this course I learned that drawing is not difficult in the way that I thought it was. Seeing things like an artist is the challenging part. Looking at a still-life and translating the shadows and colors into shades of grey (values) is what I find difficult.
I have signed up for another session of the course and I will be learning to draw with charcoal. I’m not sure if I will like getting my hands all messy (as a child I hated having messy hands) but I am determined to try another medium in my continuing search for the area of art at which I am naturally gifted. Perhaps I will never uncover my natural gift, assuming it exists of course, so I will enjoy the search and the little discoveries that come from it.
