The Struggle…

The struggle is to make myself practice.  I just want to be able to draw right now.  So after going through some exercises, I attempted the “mirror” drawing again, first drawing with a pen so I could not erase, and then doing two sketches with pencil.  I think I can see improvement… shape of face, expression in eyes and mouth.  It could be “someone”, but probably does not look much like me.  The accomplishment is simply that I will want to practice again, and won’t feel like giving up.  Do you want to give up? Don’t give up…. practice, practice, practice.  Just do it!
