So I should draw first.

While browsing Wet Canvas I stumbled across the Drawing and Sketching forum. I had been painting for several years but felt I had several gaps in my art and one was drawing, so I decided to give it a try. I saw the Weekly Drawing Thread and was warmly welcomed by Diedre (Dee). I had no idea if I could draw what the rest were drawing but with encouragement from all, I soon began to learn. Shortly after that, JayD announced his Basic 101 Drawing Class. This has been an unforgettable experience in my life and I have no words to express the gratitude for the time and patience JayD and others involved have dedicated to this project. Some of these drawings are some of my favorites and are drawings that belong to the first classes such as, drawing metal, drawing glass, drawing water, still life for light and shade, a little sketching class, our Pen and Ink class, animal and charcoal drawing. Some belong to the Weekly Drawing Thread. I will include the portraits in another post of this blog.
