i've been working on this one for a few days off and on. (more off than on) I really should try to start drawings when there are no other distractions - like that's ever gonna happen! - nevertheless.
i decided to try this one - draw an animal - because i cannot draw cats to save my life. i have my two cats - frankie and holly - around me every day and you'd think i'd be able to draw them.
i did manage a very fast sketch of holly last week that i wasnt entirely unhappy with - fast meaning 2 minutes maybe
i like to blame my problem drawing Holly on Holly - its as if she knows i'm trying to draw her and she moves. constantly. (i have little flashbacks to one of my drawing classes in school and the model would move maybe every 10 minutes or so. I know i can do fast drawings but its definitely something you must practice and i'm sorely out of practice.)
So I thought i'm going to look around online and find a photo to draw from. something that doesn't move. See if i can actually draw a cat.
The result is above. I probably could continue fooling with the drawing some more - but i need to move on.
Other things going on here - been working on my wedding scrapbook (talk about flashbacks - almost 23 years ago - i wish i could remember all the details but then again that day - it was like being in a fog - so much swirling around me. It's definitely a good reason to scrapbook stuff as it happens if at all possible. or at least jot notes down in a diary/journal/whatever - cos' you're just not gonna remember it all!)
My sister from Arizona is visiting with my 2 sweet nephews. it's so good to have her here.
ok I'm off. hopefully i'll post again soon.
