"Drawing is like taking a line for a walk." Paul KleeAnd these walks, I must say, are very enjoyable. Frustrating at times but always rewarding.
When I started drawing a few months ago, I was rather apprehensive about how it would turn out. The two years of compulsory art back in school didn't instill confidence as I recalled how my still life turned out. The only reason why I still got an 'A' was because I had the option to do manuscript writing in the final examination. Apparently, my penmanship was much better than my apple drawing skills! *LOL*
The thing is that we assume that a drawing needs to be realistic. Let go of that idea and start drawing! I can get realism from a photo so I'm going whimsical in my drawings! *winks*
I drew this girl on an 8x10 canvas panel and painted her with a mix of acrylic paints, inks, coloured pencils and gelatos. The background was created with a napkin and matte medium. I added some vintage curtain material as part of my girl's blouse.
