I always used to draw my female faces/porträts only from imagination (you critiqued one of them last time. Thank you so much!). And I really love this process of great joy and flow. This way those faces seem to emerge by themselves on the paper; I never plan them. They are my “true north” I guess. I almost never draw still lifes or landscapes, because I feel no excitement or passion for it.
But more and more I feel my limited skills when it comes to proportion, anatomy or when I want to incorporate more of the figure (hands, chest…)
So I decided to start on this site here directly at the very beginning. And I really love to listen and watch to you about all the concepts such as line, shadow shapes and so on. Many of them are new for me. But- I couldn’t finish the practice drawings in chapter 2 and 3. All this measurement-that was too much precision for me. I lost the interest half way. So I think, I will watch the lessons further and try to apply what speaks to me and choose own practice projects. And as always suggested I will also start drawing from references and life although an exact likeness is not important for me.
Do you think, that works?
I hope my post sounds not weird since English is not my mother tongue. It was quite a bit difficult for me to put my problem/question into words.
