When last we talked I was learning how to draw a little bit. I had started focusing on eyes, because everything I read said that the eyes were the hardest part. I got some amazing graphite pencils and read a lot of instruction and followed recommendations - and drew this eye.
I was really happy with this eye, and decided to try the rest of the face.
That experiment taught me a couple important things:
- First, that I can draw. And if I can draw, after years of saying that I could not - well then - I can do anything I put my mind to. WHAT A REVELATION! I am working hard to allow this awareness to change my life in 2013.
- Second, a lot of drawing is required to be a good artist. Focus and practice is critical.
- Third, for me, the eyes are NOT the hardest part. Instead, for me, it is the nose. I am not even going to show you my nose work because I have a long way to go to improve my noses. I have a lot of noses to draw. :)
Someday I will share with you here, a whole face. I just know it.
But not today.
