My Sketchpad

Hello Blog World

I mentioned in my last post that I was starting up drawing classes.  This is the first art class I have attended since moving from Melbourne over 6 years and to say I was a nervous is a complete under statement!

The main reason for my nerves besides worry if I was good enough and meeting new people was this was “real life” drawing.  Meaning still lives, drawing from sculptures, life forms etc… I had only ever drawn using reference photo’s before and never still life.  I tell you it’s a lot harder than I thought and also very different.  But I had a fantastic time and can’t wait till next week to see what else I will learn.

In celebration of my drawing classes I am sharing with you today a couple of practice sketches I did of some branches as well as the still life I did in class.

These branches, I did a practice run when I was at a little athletics tournament a couple of weeks ago.

And wah lah, my finished piece from class.  Bare in mind it’s all beginners stuff and it’s not the next masterpiece. But I am very pleased with the progression and as I said earlier I cannot wait until next Tuesday!

Not much happening on the crafty side this weekend, my daughter has her state championships for little athletics all weekend, so we will be there cheering her on.  Fingers crossed she makes the state team to go to nationals!

Until then Happy Crafting.

Good for you! You should be very proud, beginner or not! I think it's awesome! I used to draw a lot when I was younger, but apparently I forgot about that a while back...I will have to see if there are any classes in my area! Thanks so much for linking up at Fantabulous Friday @ Little Becky Homecky this week! :)
