The other day I whining about how little progress I thought I had made over the last couple of years. I’d been sick with a cold and generally whinging about everything I could think of. Last night, since I felt better I got out my sketchbook to do more practice drew this drawing of actor Martin Freeman. I remembered that I had done a drawing of Freeman in 2008 posted it here on the blog. Wow, what a difference. When I look back at that post, I realize that I have made progress with my drawing.
I tend to forget that with every drawing we make, there is progress. So I plan to fill more sketchbook pages and not worry about progressing with drawing. I’ve had enough experience to know that if I just keep going there will be bad drawings, but there will also be some good ones and eventually the good ones will get even bettter.
So Happy New Year everyone and happy drawing.
