drawing 101


my latest distraction.....

i haven't drawn in years.....many, MANY years.

i've doodled (as seen above), but i'm always hesitant to go back to that place.

it's not that i don't appreciate it. i actually do, with great admiration. it's a rite of passage, learning the basics.....drawing, printing, painting, sculpting, etc, either by self teaching or spending oodles of money to go the college route......but, what i'm passionate about now is so much more abstract than capturing realistic images.

but, i really enjoyed stretching my mind today. goddess knows i needed the work out.....

It's you at the helm for sure. Studio captures are tidy, as well. Surely, you have a better chance at understanding this doodle than we do, Ms. Smith. Fuzzy tires and a pigtail out the window. Whether abstractly or in a Crumb-like, Molly Maid representation, you get to the point. That's not easy to do. Godess in stretchpants, listen when your art rants.

You "maid" quite a nice little illustration there! Exactly how I pictured it when you told me about it. You did a better job than I could have. I love the mop! :)
