WOYWW 351

This is how my workdesk lookes like this morning


I’m in the middle of Wanderlust lesson no 7 about pens and markers.
I’m attempting to do some drawings with alcohol based markers on parchment paper for this assignment.
I just bought a book draw groovy by Thaneeya McArdle, it is in fact a kids book, but I thought it was fun for me too.
I want to try to learn how to draw, don’t know whether that is possible, whether it is a natural gift you can’t learn, we’ll see.

That's all for me today, short and sweet.

  2. Sometimes doing kids stuff is really amazing and either takes us back to our childhood or releases the freedom and innocence in us, so good on you

  3. My art teacher taught us that art is an acquired skill some find it easier then others and the rest of us work at it. I'm sure you'll do well once you get into it and there is never a wrong way to draw hugs Nikki 9

  5. You can draw. What you want to learn is how to refine it, that's all. I love the Paisley patterns you're working on..very groovy, just as the book promises!

  11. Your colourful drawings looks lovely, Vicky! Drawing skills are definitely something you can learn and develop - you don't need to be born with a special talent. It's all about observation and practice. Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #38

  12. Lovely so far, I agree with Zsuzsa, drawing is something you develop, the more you practice the better you get. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is a great book to help learning, and there are some great examples of how people improved their drawing skills

  13. Drawing is something you learn with practice but remember there is an artist in all of us. Who can compare, say, Lowry with Constable? Yet both are famous artists. At the end of the day art is in the eye of the beholder - you are an artist, you can draw, just keep at it and one day you will be satisfied, maybe.

  15. I love Paisleys, Vicky, and you've done some gorgeous ones here with fabulous bright colours. Thanks for your visit, and I'm feeling tons better now, thank you - my own fault for overdoing things! As for the dirty paint water, I do have a sink in my studio, but I still have dirty paint water lol!! Yum Sing is happy to have a name at last!

    Happy WOYWW,

  18. I love what you have done with the paisley pattern. Beautiful colour combinations. It doesn't matter that the book is a kids' book. It helps you to learn and practice.

  25. I believe we can all draw, just look around any art gallery to see the different styles and techniques. Some people say modern art is not art, but I believe art is in the eye of the beholder.
    Thanks for visiting my desk already

  26. Sounds like wanderlust is a fabulous online course. RosA was able to show me some of her work and it is all great. Love the drawing book and you don't need talent to draw just practice and a love of giving it a go. Sandra de @22

  27. Better late than never! Like any other skill -practice makes perfect - I am not very good at drawing but I enjoy having a dabble and that's all that matters isn't it. x Jo
