So my drawing teacher gave me these.
For my birthday a while back.
Lucinda has always nurtured my creative side.
And after taking one of her drawing classes, I went to the Museum of Fine Arts to draw some Venuses.
I find these curves to be a challenge.
(Like every other man on Earth).
After drawing Venuses for a year or so, I told Lucinda that watercolors sounded like fun.
So she got me the pencils.
In New England, fall has many colors.
So I figured I would try to get creative with the leaves.
My first attempt.
You draw with the pencils, then mix the colors with a waterbrush.
It’s actually kind of fun!
I find drawing to be a sort of meditation.
The time just flies by.
So which are the true colors?
The ones from nature?
Or the ones from art?
I will leave that question for the pedants.
I just enjoy making stuff.
Is this the Japanese maple?
Or is this?
I will keep playing with the pencils until I can use them well.
Then maybe I can try out watercolor paints.
I did have one other thought:
All the statues from antiquity were not white.
We now know that they were originally painted.
So I have lots of sketches.
That are just begging for some color.
Looks like I will begin my quest.
For the perfect pink.
