And the first of this year's are
which started off with the little drawing...
Then last Sunday I went to Drop By Drawing at the National Gallery of Victoria, where two or three hundred people sat in the 18th Century European galleries and drew, under the guidance of artist Minna Gilligan. It was good fun and I particularly enjoyed the 'blind contour drawing with development' exercise and produced this
which I quite liked.
So then I pulled out my long-neglected copy of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and thought that it might be a good basis for my daily drawings...blind contours really take the pressure off. I have become very tight and in fact somewhat terrified of drawing. Too tense to put pencil to paper. So,
Feeling much happier!
