MORE drawings!

The second drawing lesson happened yesterday!  I'm becoming a believer - that you CAN be taught to draw!  The projects are getting more difficult, but I seem to be enjoying it more, and my daughter seems to be enjoying it even MORE so!  Our styles are quite different from each other's - I'm trying real hard NOT to let my perfectionism get in the way.

Yesterday's lesson involved body parts - that sounds gruesome, but in fact they are indeed a mystery!

The second part of the lesson was an upside-down drawing of Jacques Cousteau, whose face is well-known and distinctively recognized.  I'm not sure my rendition would be instantly recognizable, but I think I caught the essence.  It still needs some work (like his right eyebrow!), but I was pleased both with the process and the outcome.

I'm not sure I'll ever be able to draw from my head, free-hand, freestyle, but this does seem to be a worthwhile start and investment.  I highly recommend Alexis Seabrook as instructor/artist.
