A few months ago Lisa of “Zeebra designs and destination” invited any one interested to join her each week to take timeout for art.
Thank you Lisa for stirring the right side of my brain into action. You are so right in saying that the act of drawing ( or any other form of art) creates a feeling of being totally absorbed and calm. I have sketched quite regularly since you gave us that “call to pick up a pencil and give it a go”, now I really look forward to finding time to practice. I carry a small sketch book and pencils in my bag and find odd moments through the day, ie waiting in the café for the coffee to arrive or just time to observe the world around me and try to capture it.
I’ve also discovered YouTube is an amazing source of tutorials and the local library has a huge choice of art books.
I’m living with 6 cats at the moment and they are a constant source of delight and entertainment and as they don’t stay still for very long I have taken many photos of them. So this week I used one of the photos as my model to draw from and with the help of a You Tube tutorial this is what I drew this week.
So if you feel like joining drop over to check out Lisa’s blog.
