I’m currently working on perspective drawing and shading. Gee, who knew art was so technical?! :-)
I just hope it doesn’t ruin the fun of doing art. In other words, one of the important things about art is seeing — I mean, truly seeing. I hope I can turn off seeing like I often have done with my psychic stuff. Because right now, I keep looking for the shadows and shades in everything. haha
I’ve been working with the Drawing Mentor series ebooks by Sarah Bowles. I’m currently working with Drawing Mentor 3, Perspective & 3D Shapes, Drawing Mentor 9, Sketching People & Animals, and Drawing Mentor 13, Portrait Drawing.
These ebooks are quick and simple, and are giving me a taste of what I’ll need to do to get better at drawing. Eventually I’ll be taking a special course to further develop technique but I hope my style will remain. As much as I want to know how to draw realistically, I really like idealistic and abstract drawing.
