Bloom True Boot Camp: Week 2
Thur Sept 11
Your Life in Lines
Today's prompt is all about firstly noticing and then drawing the world around us. Not just looking but really seeing then letting our imaginations create our own versions of what we see.
I do tend to steer well clear of drawing anything. I equate drawing with perfection and having to get it right and I don't think I'm very good at it.
I sketched this portrait of my son Mitch with a pencil while enjoying my afternoon cuppa. I sat there thinking hmmm, what can I draw? Mitch was playing the play station near to me. The thought of attempting a portrait of him seemed completely pointless, I don't draw people, and I looked around for something easier. Then I remembered.. I can't do it wrong! I had to do it. I let myself do it.
What do you think? Not too bad hey... I'm really happy with my efforts considering my expectations. Can't say it looks too much like Mitch but it does look a lot like my friend Cindy's son Luke which is cool!
Maybe I can draw people after all? Maybe I could add some people to my paintings.. I've been wanting to try for awhile but never have the courage? Maybe I'll give it a go... can't go wrong can I.
Delicious don't you think?
Thanks Flora for pushing me to do the things I may never have done otherwise.
