Drawing Class Sketch #5

I am very encouraged to be seeing improvement and am having such a great time that I hate to see this class come to an end. I think we have only two sessions remaining. Each session, after a short discussion and demo, we do at least two twenty minute sketches.  

This and the drawing from the previous post were done during the same session. I wasn't feeling very well but really didn't want to miss the class. I did not much feel like drawing but was determined to participate, even if nothing good came from it. And I learned a very valuable lesson that day! I learned first hand that it is not necessary to wait for inspiration to hit before I could produce something worthwhile. While these are not perfect sketches, I am greatly encouraged! Especially when I compare them to drawings done just a few short months ago!

I have been doing my best to do something art related every single day. If not painting or drawing, I am reading an art book or watching an art DVD. It is an easy discipline when you are doing what you love.

The journey continues. Thanks for coming along with me!
