| An Art Journaling Journey: an "anything goes" 2011 »
In previous years I had told everyone that I don't know how to draw. Then in 2010 I decided, "Why can't I draw?" And I started teaching myself...
You want to know the best way to learn to draw? Draw. A lot. Every day if you can.
I also kept layering, inking, painting...joy.

I am taking two drawing courses this year at the local community college here in Brockville towards my ever nearing Fine Arts Certificate. One is Life Drawing and the other Basic Drawing or as the teacher calls it "making marks". She told us at the beginning of the semester that an important artist once said, "Draw everyday for 1/2 hour and if you don't feel like it draw until you do." I find these words of wisdom apply to all aspects of my life and just wanted to share them with you.
Love your work and the progression. I also enjoy your blog.
