i am enrolled in 2 classes this semester. i felt i needed a freshen up on my drawing & painting skills. i was a little nervous. well, in the drawing class, we were given an assignment to draw 16 different views of a paper bag. then we were to take 2 of those drawings and morph them together into a composition. what? i told myself that i don't know how to draw what i don't see. my problem was that i was not looking. i forgot how to see! negative spaces, contour lines, angles, relationships, value, perspective, oh my! it was all so intimidating. i struggled.
this was a great reminder for myself to relax and enjoy the process!
