I've always felt like I have no drawing ability whatsoever but this first attempt did not come out as dreadful as anticipated! I'm keen to see how my (lack of) skills progress during the course.
1. I'm glad we were drawing from a photo so I could keep referring back. My eraser got a workout! The general shape was easier than trying to get the shading and details added in. I need to find some watercolor paints.
2. I've seen yellow warblers many times but don't know that I've noticed all the subtle color variations. also, the structure of the claws as they wrapped around the branch was really interesting.
I've always been interested in documenting my travels and adventures. I make scrapbooks when I return from trips and journal just by writing each evening of a trip. But I wanted something more. Even though I feel that I have no drawing skills whatsoever I want to give it a try.
I want to include landscapes as well as plants and animals. I like the idea of date, place, time and weather.
