Genevieve looks so happy. She knows that we are going to take time out to draw!
Just begin. That’s what I was trying to show my granddaughters yesterday. One wants to learn how to draw her dog. We were at their allergist so I told her its easiest to start by drawing with a photo. I had one she’d sent me on my pone so I pulled out a non waterproof pen and drew the outline showing her how I start with something easy like the ear. Then I pulled out a brush to shade it and there was her puppy (well enough, anyhow). I will get her to pick a photo at home unless her dog is sleeping so she can draw live but not moving. We did pull some Christmas gift wrap out of my bag and they made journal collage pages with them and a copy of the family Christmas photo. They added a few sequins for sparkle and so spent the twenty minutes they hate so much which they have to spend sitting to see if they get a reaction from the allergy shot in a productive and enjoyable way. The time went by before they had time to get bored! I had taken my art bag that holds everything but we could still have done art with just a pencil and their journals. Maybe some day they’ll be in the habit of having something handy for those waiting moments. I know I am getting braver about drawing in public.
Jennifer, this has been a wonderfully inspiring series, and I am sure I will be revisiting over and over. I’ve had some of the derailment from drawing that you mention recently, due to life just taking over, and squeezing the drawing out – and you’re right, it’s very hard to start again. But this was such a good way of looking at it, and such serendipitous timing – thank you. Jane
Always a pleasure, thank you!
A perfect ending for this wonderful course. Thank you so much Jennifer :-).
