Outside that Comfort Zone
So there has been much discussion as of late about stepping outside of comfort zones and growing as an artist.
It is important to me to do this and to push myself so that I do not stagnate. So along those lines I am going to publish the results from my first two weeks in portrait drawing class. We are working from real live people and I am not really thrilled with the results.
I am putting these up here for a few different reasons. One, I would like people to know that I am walking what I am talking. Two, I want to demonstrate that the immediate results are not what it is truly important… and lastly I am hoping that as the class progresses I will be able to see an improvement in what I am doing. (I will post the drawings from other classes here or in another post.)
I know rather this proves to be true or not that I have already learned a great deal about both myself and about drawing portraits and I am glad to have been able to do this.
These sketches were done in about 15 minutes each and all of them had different goals. The class is being taught by Patricia Tribastone at the Art Stop in Webster, NY.
