Drawing for Pleasure
When I was growing up I loved to draw. As a child I was often still awake in the wee hours of the morning always drawing, painting and sketching. I would draw all kinds of things; flowers; birds; imaginary experiences from dreams, and still life compositions. I used charcoal, pastel and lead pencil with a free fluid approach.
I fell out of love with drawing in my early 20’s; mainly as a result of formal architectural training and practice. During an office day I would draw orthogonal lines day in and day out. I was drawing architecture. I was not drawing drawings.
Recently I have picked up the pencil (and paint brush) again and am drawing just for pleasure. Here I nervously share with you some of my first marks on paper…
great post Christina! Love the hat too. xleesa
Thank you for your kind feedback! It was a great hat!
I used to wear it with a bright yellow painting smock. Rather distinctive attire!
