It was summer of 06, I think. It might have been 05. I was sunbathing outside. Since it was quite boring I decided to get some paper and a pencil. To do some drawing. So I got them and while laying in the sun drew a snake. It is one of the easiest things, but after that one snake I couldn’t draw a new one. I wanted something different. That’s when I went and got these books of sorts. It had different animals in them and where they can be found and so on. I have some of those pictures, but I didn’t date them then.
After that I thought I should focus on birds and bugs, because, well, they are a lot easier to draw than animals. And after doing some just pencil sketches, I wanted to do color.
….and after some more practice….
Sometimes I think I should have taken more time to practice and just sketch. I would be so much better at all this. But there is nothing I can do now. So that is why I try to draw as much as I can now. Because, you know practice makes perfect. To finnish this I will show you my almost finished garden roses. Made them blue just because I could.
