    So I haven’t drawn or painted in 15 years. I challenge myself to draw or sketch at least 20 minutes each day. Let’s see if I still remember how to hold a pen?

    I’ve no idea why the image is horizontal? In any case, that’s the view from my local bird tower. Sketch took 20 mins and retrieving dropped pens at least another 20 (no losses though!).

    @newmastersacademy I think my posts get stuck in the spam filter if I attach multiple images?

    Flashbacks from the first day of class: you think you know a ton and it’s dawning on you that you don’t even know the basics.

    I’m consoling myself with the knowledge that in music, the difference between an amateur and an expert is not what they can do, it’s how they do it—even if it’s only a basic scale.


    Might draw more later today, might not.

    I’m in a similar boat, after more than 15 yrs of not doing much, I finally started drawing again. Good work, you’ll get the skills back!

    @Peihong Jiang Thanks for the vote of confidence! Your anatomy challenge looks awesome, I’ll have to do something similar later. I’ve been meaning to brush up on AP anyway. I was drawing from Gray’s way back when I gave up art, but I should probably get something more current.

    First week in and I’m simultaneously enjoying the practice so much that Im developing sudden regrets pursuing a degree in science not art; and dreading it because I’m starting to remember how much I have to (re)learn.

    I had forgotten I even had coloured pencils! Not really finished, but at this point the light was gone and the bugs were getting the best of me. Originally I didn’t plan to colour or even render it, which is why it has a lot of pencil lines showing through. My 20 minutes a day is quickly turning into 2 hours—which I don’t have but I’m having so much fun I can’t bring myself to care.
