Henrietta takes shape
What is it about the human body that is so difficult to portray in art? The lines, the proportions, the shapes... I draw light and find myself erasing line after line after line. After awhile, it feels more like a mechanical drawing than it does free-flowing art. One line looks right then I realize it pulled the proportion out of whack for another part of the body.Can you tell I'm a wee bit frustrated this morning? I always hope that working on a creative art project would daily rejuvenate my spirit. Today, it sucked the energy right out of me.
But since throwing in the towel isn't an answer, I'll just push forward.
