"Why would you take a drawing class
when you already know how to draw?" someone asked.
• In drawing one never stops progressing & learning.
• One learns from other students as well as a teacher.
• New energy & motivation.
• New exercises & materials = good bye comfort zone!
• Community of folks with similiar passions
The above drawing may appear to be similiar
to many I've posted.
It was re-drawn with my familiar ink
from a fast, on-location pencil sketch
which was new & different.
I haven't used graphite in a long time.
And I used a "WOODLESS PENCIL",
introduced to us in class. Very dark, smooth, & rich!
An in-class exercise also affected the way I'm drawing now:
Drawing with our non-dominant hand!
A wonderful way to loosen one's approach!
I HAD to do it when I had a wrist injury,
but the comfort zone made me abandon the practice
when the wrist healed.
