An art friend, recently, gifted me with this really cool book........
It was one of those things I didn't know I wanted, until I had it......it is a great book and, now I know, I wanted and needed it!!! The author, Carla Sonheim, gives you some super exercises to stretch those drawing muscles.
So, this morning I sketched our Al Cat while he was taking his morning nap in the sun!
Then I tried Carla's exercise, trying to draw a more whimsical, less realistic cat! I know for those who "say" they can't draw that would sound like it is easier.....it isn't!
She suggest drawing about 30 of them.....I'm a tenth of the way there! She, also, suggest putting the drawing pad on a pillow for a less stable surface. I have to try that, too. But, it got me drawing and any practice is good practice and I would love to be able to draw whimsical animals!
This is a fun book.....Thanks, Shelia, I love it.
