Yay, summer is here! I've gotten back to drawing and painting again! Got a good book at Half Price which motivates me. It's called Everyone Can Draw by Barrington Barber. I hadn't drawn much with pencil in the past few years. Mostly pen and ink and watercolor, but this book has wonderful drawings and sketches.
I've also just finished a novel by Elizabeth Kostova called The Swan Thieves. The main characters are artists, and their daily drawing and painting is essential to the story. How could I read that and not feel like I wanted to get back into it? I think I have improved just in the past 2 weeks by doing it daily.
