For the past few years I have been dabbling and doodling and not making progress in the world of art. It is fun to dabble and doodle but I want to make my art something more.
Last Sabbath I put this "Crown Imperial (fritillaria imperialis)" on paper... fond remembrances of Paris and particularly Versailles where I saw this flower up close.
It has since gone into the BORING file and I announced that I need lessons. Help!
Hence, Lesson no.1...
Sherwin is not an art teacher but he has taken lessons and so even though it may be a little like one hungry beggar telling another hungry beggar where to find the food, he has sat in a lot of art classes and something must have rubbed off.
I love his work so I went to his book where he took some classes a few years ago and started at the beginning.
There is my beginning, just following in the footsteps of my 'teacher'. When I looked at lesson 1 I thought, "I know that..." but after I worked with those colours for a while and studied his page I saw a lot that I had not previously noticed.
Wish me well and since this blog is the journal of My Life you will probably be subjected to my 'progress'.
I am very thankful today that I have this opportunity to spend time with my art.
Wishing you all a lovely Sabbath day.
