Lately I have been drawing and sketching a lot. The more I draw the easier it becomes and (dare I say it) it has even become fun. When I started drawing and painting again back in February it felt like such a chore to put pencil to paper! I'm glad that has changed.
This morning I carved out some time before teaching classes to look back through and process some of these drawings in my sketchbook.
This page of "insect faces" was more inspired by the fishing lures I saw
Sunday than the detailed insect drawings I've been doing at
the local nature center.
Not many people around me share my sentiment, but I'm fascinated by insects because they are a cross between tiny aliens and colorful angels.
