Some of you might not actually know this, but I used to draw. A lot. In fact, I was originally planning to major in art, but a number of things stopped me (one of which was a lack of jobs in the field! HA. Like there are jobs in my field). Well, that same chain of events led to me eventually very nearly dropping art out of my life. A big reason for that was that I’ve always wished I could draw from my imagination, but my talent lies in drawing from life- what I’ve called being a “human photocopier”. I hated it.
It’s been several years since I drew anything of note, and I really miss it. I’ve sort of decided that it’s time to accept my talent for what it is, instead of wasting it away wishing it was something other than it is. So here’s where you come in.
I want you to help me choose what I’ll draw next.
I’m going to post four photos that I think I’d be able to draw fairly well, just to get back into the swing of things. I’d like you all to vote on which one I should draw. Voting will close on Friday, as that’s when I head off to the retreat and will hopefully start my drawing. I’ll be using prismacolor colored pencils.
Here are the options!
Option 1: Kittyface.
Option 2: Monkey in Thailand.
Option 3: Flowers.
and Option 4: Hands.
Comment with your vote!
(for the curious… 1 is my cat Lyra; 2 is a monkey at Phra Prang Sam Yod in Thailand, when I visited in college; three is I think violets, in Janelle’s mother’s yard, last spring; and four is my and my husband’s hands at our wedding.)
