For whatever reason, I was seized by the urge to try drawing. I was browsing in a Times bookstore, and I happened on this drawing kit. It consisted of a CD of about an hour of an artist teaching you how to draw. There’s also an instruction book for you to follow along. That was interesting.
But I didn’t buy that. After a couple more visits to the bookstore, I finally searched more on learning artwork. And I found a huge thick book by Barrington Barber, called The Complete Book of Drawing (Amazon affiliate link).
After some self debating, I decided to buy that book instead. After flipping through a few pages, I sense I’m going on an awesome adventure. And then I went out to buy some minimal art supplies.
I practised on the drawing exercises. It was tough. I had trouble keeping my eye on the tip of the pencil as I drew. Eventually, I felt I could try imitating some of the tough-looking drawings in the book. And this was my landscape drawing:
I think I’m better at landscapes.
