I'm smack dab in the middle of a five-week online art course that has me perfecting my procrastination skills and busting through artistic comfort zones all at once:
I signed up for the course before we moved with the hopes it would serve as incentive to get my studio up and organized quickly. On Day 1 of the class I felt like smacking my head against the wall, asking myself "WTF was I thinking?!"
Thankfully, I pushed through and engaged.
I am tired, I am intimidated and I'm becoming an expert at procrastination when faced with new techniques that scare me. In fact, this very blog post is procrastination in action!
I'm also connecting with wonderful people, moving through artistic fears and learning a LOT.
All of this and I'm not even done Week 3.I leave you with a photo essay of my journey so far...
new art class, new supplies <giddy>
adventures in mark making, this piece has changed considerably since the photo
more mark making, this time intentional vs. intuitive
blind contour drawing of my hand, a first for me
a charcoal portrait of yours truly - sans glasses, another first
first ever figure painting based on a photo, huzzah!
