And ....... I'm back!! This morning, I suddenly couldn't think of anything more fun to do than painting ... a woman ... in "my" style. I was wondering if I still could after learning so much drawing technique.
The whole time I was painting I was thinking of the classes I had taken. One thing I learned for sure is that most anyone can learn technique if they apply themselves. To me, it's fun to learn how to put things on paper so they look "real" and it's useful to know how to draw certain things. However, in my opinion that's not where the soul of a piece of art comes from. I'm not sure that is something you can learn.
And so I was wondering? Could I still paint how I feel? Could I still paint one of "my" women I would feel connected to. The answer is "yes" and it makes me very happy!
Tomorrow I should be able to show you the finished piece!
