Occasionally I love to draw, and so I sought out some YouTube tutorials. I try to copy whatever they are doing within reason – the lion’s face is three months down the line and will take forever but it is definitely a ‘to (attempt) do’ on my list. I am hoping to learn a lot more about light and shade using pencil, gaining new perspectives as I go. Step by step is often best and also to listen to what they have say about how and why stuff works, works well for me. I also got a buzz from watercolour pencils since I am not handy with a brush – it is not a favourite medium of mine – these proved invaluable in learning some new techniques the easier way. I will practise a lot more before I publish.
