I won't bore you with the really boring stuff, like drawing circles and squares, and trying to make them look 3D. I've finally got to the interesting bit in the book and I'm starting to draw stuff. This was my first attempt at a rose, yes it needs work, but I see this as the basis, from this I can turn it into a more realistic rose - or that is the theory! This started life as a simple spiral, and just by the addition of a few lines, some shading it starts to resember a flower. I even tackled a portrait! The confidence is returning, at least my hand and arm no longer tighten up when I pick up a pencil.
I'm currently working on trees, I am okay with the body of the tree, and branches, but the foilage is defeating me, so I need to practice.
I also had some bad news on my sister, but the good news is that she is now improving, and that they got all the cancer. So we're all relieved, she still faces many challenges, but she has a loving family around her.
I think that's all from me, hopefully I won't let the blogging lapse that long again. Thanks for stopping by.
