I am soooo excited!! 😀
I am going to my first drawing lesson with Mr. Joe tomorrow. He’s the son of the artist that I was going to for watercolor lessons.
After discussing money..or the lack of money..with the hubby, we decided that I would pause in my watercolor instruction and focus on fine tuning my drawing….So, I have my first lesson tomorrow. Yay!!
I was supposed to go today, but we had cruddy weather that I did Not want to be driving…boating…in, so I canceled…buuuut, he had an opening for tomorrow. Yes! 🙂
So, after a looooong day of grocery shopping, house cleaning, homeschooling catch ups and corrections, cooking, prepping for lit class tomorrow, writing up some ideas for cards for a friend, and a plethora of other things that pop up when you have something you really want to work on….I finally had some time to paint and doodle.
Of course, I spent too much time painting and not enough time doodling…Oh well. I painted two abstract paintings and did a teensy, weensy bit of doodling for my book.
I need to doodle more and get used to working with ink. You can’t fix ink! Aaargh! So difficult for me to deal with…I hate mistakes and once I get something just right I’m soooo afraid I’m gonna goof it up with the ink and have to start everything all over again. Plus, I don’t like starting in pencil, then inking over it..I miss lines sometimes and I think it looks blechy..I’m bad and just skip the pencil and draw in ink, keeping my fingers crossed the entire time hoping I don’t mess up. Lol
So, I tried some clothes on a clothesline…a doodle that wasn’t too hard..no people..I am sooo bad at people… I tried to just keep with the idea of less is more. 😀
I’ll have to see if I have more time to doodle before I go to my lesson tomorrow….I am sooo nervous. Oy
The Bluemoon Thinker 🙂
P.S.- I will update ya with how it goes and hopefully have even better doodles to show. 😀
Happy Doodles! 🙂
