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.

Don't throw in the towel...heck I think it is looking good. I keep promising myself I'm going to try to draw nude bodies.
