Back to Square One

After a long hiatus in painting and drawing, I needed to return to basics after an epic watercolor fail. LOL

I had forgotten how zen-like and soothing pencil work can be. Here is my first (an antler bud)…next domes a mushroom.

Hi Anita - welcome to the Community at The Virtual Instructor. I have found myself that if I get away from my art for even a month or two, some of my previously obtained skills start to reflect my lack of practice. And don’t worry about failures because that is part of the learning process and I throw away stuff more often than I’d like to admit. Thanks for posting your drawing - nice range of values, especially the mid-tones. Keep posting :slight_smile:

Hello Anita,

I must say that Terri said it all. I completely agree with her. This is a safe place where we can show our success and failures. Just keep going forward and as Matt says - practice, practice, practice!

Something I still need to get a habit of on most days.

Welcome to the Virtual Instructor.

Thanks…failures don’t bother me. I’m 86 and have had plenty hit the trash can…and some made the galleries. So onward we march.
