Flower Drawings

For the past few weeks, I've been taking a Beginning Drawing class. It's a little bit strange since I've taken several drawing classes in the past, including Beginning and Advanced Drawing at the college level. But it has been a great refresher for me.

We drew flowers. Here's the original photo I found on flickr:

and mine:




I've never been great at drawing, but one of the best things I've learned by taking this class is that I can start and finish a pretty darn good drawing if I just take the time to look, pay attention, draw what I see, and be patient.





It's nice to get back into drawing again. I feel like it's a little piece of my soul that longs to get out more, but is extremely shy. She just needs some patience and a lot of gently coaxing.
