Still don’t know what I’m doing!


I need to take a class or something. I still don’t know what I’m doing. Only the class should teach the basics and then let me do whatever the hell I want to. What is keeping me back from classes is the stupid flowers or fruit bowls they smother me with. I want something on fabric and skin tones and hair and stuff. Someone, make this happen!

  1. Aw, thanks ty. What I obviously need to do is sign up for a class to get an ego-boost and do my serious art stuff at home. I miss my fan club. Did I ever tell you I did oil pastels in a class full of people over 70? I remember it fondly. They were feisty old people. One of them was excited about a movie version of Lord of the Rings being made. I printed her out a sheet of all the head shots of the actors they cast. I fully expect her to be a future version of myself checking up on me. How I know there will never be time travel is that I’ve not done that to myself yet. Because I totally would.

  2. Thomas Edison didn’t invent the light bulb overnight. He did invent several hundred ways not to do it… um. So take from that whatever you may. Or want. Just don’t throw things.

  3. You are learning…it is obvious. Try taking a studio painting class. There is no real instruction but other artists will help if it doesn’t take too much of their time…or maybe start with a life drawing class…? Whatever seems best for your comfort level.

    • Thanks. I think being deprived of an actual art environment is a big issue. I work at an ad agency but I’m the only one who can draw at all (and only one of two left handed people…shocking). I am really rusty, but I know it is in me somewhere. I used to draw 3-5 hours a day, but have not in at least five years. See how far some actual effort gets me now. Not quite like getting back on a bike.
