Learning to draw has long been a velleity* of mine, so when I read about a course which promised that “if you can write your name you can learn to draw“, I signed up.
Day 1: (pre-instruction)
Day 4: (With kind permission of the model)
I’m not fond of** the final self-portrait – I like the left side and I like the right side, but they don’t work together. I won’t be hanging it on the wall any time soon and don’t think that I’ll be giving up the day job just yet, but if you’d told me on Monday that I’d be drawing that on Friday, I would not have believed you.
Can I draw well? Not yet.
Can I draw? Yes. And for now, that will do just fine.
*A mere wish, unaccompanied by effort to obtain.
