I've downloaded a book onto my Kindle called 'Learn to Draw in 30 Days'. After a break of several months I'm back in drawing mode, and just starting painting mode.
This could possibly be due to the Summer holidays being on the horizon - as term draws to a close I find I have less and less energy and enthusiasm for anything more than endless games of Free cell as a form of mind-less mind-fullness after teaching and then writing up notes and then answering emails to do with teaching.
Anyway, this book;
absolutely seems to do what it says on the cover. I'm up to lesson 18 now. I just spend a few minutes in the morning doing whatever the day's lesson is.
Lesson 1,2 and 3 were spheres.
I am so enjoying this! The author, Mark Kistler has the same idea about teaching as me; break things down into fool proof steps and just Do it!.
It's the hottest day of the year - don't I just know it. Clouds are building up on the horizon, the sort that suggest a thunderstorm, and torrential rain, but only if we water the garden first.
