I forgot how much I enjoy drawing. It’s just for me. I’m not an artist. But there’s something so relaxing about it. When my mind is too full and I need to reset myself, drawing with my four-year-old does the trick.
I also realized that I never did work through the book, “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”. I bought the book a few years ago, did one of the assignments – where I had to draw my hand and then I stopped.
So this weekend, I pulled the book off the shelf then went to the store and bought a box of hexagon colored pencils. They are nice and fat and there are twenty colors. Aren’t they pretty?
We could all use a little splash of color in our lives I think!
Again, I have to tell you that it is because of my friends Brandee and Matt that I’m picking up a pencil and drawing. They inspire me as do all my wonderful blogging friends I’ve made. Each and every single one of them has inspired me in so many ways. I thank each of you and hope you know how much I appreciate it!
I won’t be doing a one a day drawing or anything like that. Just when the mood strikes. Maybe one a week. I’d like to perfect my trees. I love drawing trees, landscapes and tulips.
I figured buying these colored pencils was a good start. Now, to do the work!
