Disasters, and surprises.

I was looking through some of my contacts on flickr, and saw I really nice drawing:


I asked her how she learned how to draw, and in her reply she said that she had many disasters.  I think that right now I mostly have disasters, but in my disasters I see a few surprises.

22. A disaster, nothing else.  Pen.

23.  I bought a learn to draw flowers book at Michaels.  Here is the first. Pencils.

24.  Here is the surprise!  I tried it again, and I think this one is a LOT better!!!

25. A car I drew in 10 minutes at the cafe.  I like it.  :D  It's not good but it makes me happy. Pen.

26. Random. Pen.

17 - 21

This week I have been uninspired to draw. I have been working on making ATCs, and mail art for the various swaps I do. I am including one of the ATCs I made this week.  Today I felt like giving up because I am 40, and should have started drawing 30 years ago, and feeling like it will take me ten years to draw so why even try. But I made it through feeling sorry for myself. I put ink and pencil on paper, and here they are!

17.  Shading practice for online class. Pencils.

18.  Butterfly attempt. pen.

19. Chocolate ATC for a swapbot swap. Pen and colored pencils.

20.  Things from my kitchen counter.  pen.

21.   A chair.  Pen.

That is all for now! Hope I pick up the pace soon!

Eleven through sixteen.

So far this is fun still.  Yes I realize 10,000 seems impossible, and will take years and years.  I can only imagine, dream really, how much better I might be when I am done.  Maybe by then when my daughter asks me how to draw something I won't have a blank look on my face and search the internet for a tutorial.  - Rachel
