Day 10 - Drawing Is Hard.

Day 10 - Drawing Is Hard.

Day 10 - Today, we are going to draw something.  Did I just here you groan and say "I can't draw!?" I have a secret for you. Most artists say, "I can't draw."  This isn't an exaggeration. Why do professional and aspiring artists have the same feeling about drawing?  Perhaps, the perception is drawing is something you just do without practice. You pop out of the womb and "Hello Michelangelo." However, drawing is hard! Just like anything else, you have to know how to crawl before you can run.

Today, is an exercise in crawling: observation. You will grab a piece of fruit or a vegetable of choice, your LBNB (or paper) and a pen. Take one only (1 minute) to observe the produce. Is it smooth or rough? What shapes make up the fruit? Does it have a pattern? What colors make up the veg?

Now take 1 minute to draw it. Please, no more than a minute. Now repeat:

I can't draw, yet.
